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.

About Rockville Little Theatre
1947 was a banner year for theatre. Broadway had just seen the world premiere of A Streetcar Named Desire, and the very first Tony Awards were held to the delight of theatre artists, theatergoers, and guys named Tony everywhere. But there were also smaller victories throughout the country. Hundreds of miles away from the Great White Way, a group of six Rockville residents assembled to create the aptly named Rockville Little Theatre and debuted in 1948 with a production of Noel Coward's Hay Fever. In the years since that first performance, the theatre company has only grown larger in membership, stature, and attendance. Placing an emphasis on quality theater and family programming, the theater's award-winning mix of new and classic comedies, mysteries, and dramas designed to appeal to theatregoers of all ages.
