What Is the Story of The Miracle Worker?
Ripped from the history books, The Miracle Worker is tells the incredible story of Helen Keller, a young girl afflicted with both blind and deafness, and Annie Sullivan, the extraordinary teacher who finds a way for Helen to learn. The play centers on the pivotal portion of Keller's childhood whenSullivan enters her life. As Sullivan struggles to reach Helen, she must also contend with the obstacles in her student's family, namely a domineering patriarch resistant to change, a young mother who loves too much, and a son whose resentment of Helen bubbles close to the surface. The Miracle Worker lays the foundation for the ultimately miraculous and inspiring stories that have moved audiences for years.
