The Miracle Worker
The keys that unlocked the dark, soundless, and inaccessible world of Helen Keller jangle on stage in William Gibson’s classic drama. At the play’s onset in 1880s Alabama, the young Helen thrashes out at the world and her family, both of which she cannot hear or see until meeting the young teacher Annie Sullivan. As the famous pair struggles to learn ways for Helen to communicate, Annie must tread carefully on emotional terrain fenced by a domineering dad, a sensitive mother, and a son resentful of his sister. The passionate onstage portrayals hold a mirror to the more pedestrian, yet still frustrating, failures of human communication and understanding.
