WINNER! 1960 TONY AWARD – Best Play
This American classic tells the true story of Annie Sullivan and her student, Helen Keller, who is both blind and deaf.
The Miracle Worker dramatizes the relationship between the lonely teacher and her charge. Trapped in a secret, silent world, unable to communicate, Helen is violent, apparently unreachable and unteachable. Only Annie realizes that there is a mind and spirit waiting to be rescued from the dark and silence. Through scenes of intense physical and emotional conflict, Annie’s success finally comes with Helen’s discovery of language through a single, word: “water”.
