THE MIRACLE WORKER
BY WILLIAM GIBSON
A captivating, uplifting, and emotional true story!
A timeless American classic and Tony Award-winning BEST PLAY!
This timeless American classic tells the inspiring true story of how a determined teacher was able to save young Helen Keller from her isolated silence. Just before the turn of the 20th century, desperate for help, the Keller Family hires a young woman to help their blind and mute daughter learn to communicate with the outside world. Annie Sullivan sees that Helen is more than a spoiled and violent child trapped behind a wall, and against tremendous odds, she frees Helen’s spirit and opens her mind. Made famous by the film starring Anne Bancroft and Patty Duke, The Miracle Worker, is a moving, inspirational, and electrifying story of perseverance, friendship, and hope.
