The inspiring story of Helen Keller and Anne Sullivan, the teacher who opened the world to a blind and deaf child, comes to the stage as The City Theatre Company presents The Miracle Worker October 28 – November 20, 2011.
“When we do the best we can, we never know what miracle is wrought in our life.”
William Gibson’s play tells the story of young Helen Keller, blind, deaf, and mute since infancy, who is in danger of being sent to an institution. Her inability to communicate has left her frustrated and violent. In desperation, her parents seek help from the Perkins Institute, which sends them a "half-blind schoolgirl" named Annie Sullivan to tutor their daughter.
