The Miracle Worker
Directed by Kevin Wm. Meyer
February 20 to March 15, 2009
The 1st production of the 2009 Season
Written by: William Gibson
This stirring dramatization of the story of Helen Keller is one of the most successful and warmly admired plays of the modern stage. Being blind and mute, nobody knows what Helen’s fate might have been had she not come under the tutelage of Annie Sullivan, an Irish girl who had been born blind. The Miracle Worker is principally concerned with the emotional relationship between the lonely teacher and her blind charge. Little Helen, trapped in her secret world, is bitter, violent, spoiled and almost animal like. Only Annie realizes that there is a mind waiting to be rescued from that dark, tortured silence. Annie’s success with Helen comes only after some of the most turbulent, violent, and emotion packed scenes ever presented on the stage.
