This classic tells the story of Annie Sullivan and her student, blind and mute Helen Keller. The Miracle Worker dramatizes the volatile relationship between the lonely teacher and her charge. Trapped in a secret, silent world, unable to communicate, Helen is violent, spoiled, almost sub-human and treated by her family as such. Only Annie realizes that there is a mind and spirit waiting to be rescued from the dark, tortured silence. With scenes of intense physical and emotional dynamism, Annie's success with Helen finally comes with the utterance of a single, glorious word: "water".
"Interesting, absorbing and moving." - The New York Post
 
THE MIRACLE WORKER was first presented at the Playhouse Theatre in New York City on October 19, 1959. It was directed by Arthur Penn.
 
     Performances: January. 6 – 8, 2017
