Playwright William Gibson’s gripping story of Annie Sullivan's struggle to teach the blind and deaf Helen Keller how to communicate will be brought to life on the CATS stage for the first time.

SYNOPSIS: This true story of Helen Keller and Annie Sullivan is a gripping battle to overcome impossible obstacles and the struggle to communicate. This classic play tells the story of Annie Sullivan and her student, deaf, 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, and 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.
