THE MIRACLE WORKER
Stage II - Friday 3/10/2017 - Sunday 3/26/2017
Based on a remarkable a true story, this inspiring and unforgettable play is an American classic and tells the story of Annie Sullivan and her student, blind, deaf and mostly mute, young Helen Keller was pitied and coddled by her family, so spoiled that she terrorized the household with tantrums and tricks. When Anne Sullivan arrived, barely 20 years old, she brought the key that would unlock the door between Helen and the world.

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.

The Director, Darrell Hill, is excited to be bringing this Tony Award-winning play is a profoundly moving story of courage and communication, and a testament to the powerful influence of dedicated teachers.. It is being performed in our Stage II Black Box Theatre for the intimacy that can only be provided in that venue.

Gibson's play is one of those great examples of a drama that takes real American life stories and turns them into enduring art; in that sense, it is comparable to such great works as "The Crucible," by Arthur Miller
