The Miracle Worker

Poster for The Miracle Worker.

“I wanted to teach you—oh, everything the earth is full of, Helen, everything on it that’s ours for a wink and then it’s gone.”

An illness leaves a very young child named Helen Keller blind and deaf, and consequently mute.  By the age of six, she seems to be completely unreachable and her family is losing hope.  Then her parents hire Anne Sullivan as a teacher for their daughter, and Anne must discover some way to do the one thing a teacher must–communicate The result is a profoundly moving piece of theatre.
