This production was quite touching. The actor that played Helen and the teacher were awesome. I almost cried a few time. Little Helen was a fiesty something. lol

Description

The Miracle Worker is a cycle of 20th century dramatic works derived from Helen Keller’s autobiography “The Story of My Life”. Each of the various dramas describe the relationship between Keller – a deaf blind and initially almost feral child – and Anne Sullivan, the teacher who introduced her to education, activism, and international celebrity by teaching her sign language. Drawing heavily from letters written by Anne Sullivan in 1887, as well as from Helen Keller’s autobiography, William Gibson constructed a drama around the events that took place when Helen Keller and her teacher, Anne Sullivan, first met in the 1880’s.
