The Miracle Worker
A classic drama by William Gibson
Immortalized on both stage and screen by Anne Bancroft and Patty Duke, this is the true and inspirational story of Annie Sullivan and her blind, deaf and mute student, Helen Keller. Central to the play is the volatile relationship between the lonely teacher, herself visually impaired, and her charge. Isolated in a world of silence, unable to communicate, Helen has become wild, destructive, and spoiled by her family. Only Annie recognizes her potential and is determined to do whatever it takes to reach her. Annie’s success is realized in the dramatic, break-through scene where Helen finally connects the motions her teacher is making in her palm with the water running over her other hand. (Helen Keller went on to become one of the most widely admired people of the 20th century.)
