HHS Theatre Presents: The Miracle Worker
HHS Theatre Presents: The Miracle Worker by William Gibson. November 17th and 18th at 7 p.m. General Admision tickets will be sold at the door; $8 for adults and $5 for students
Helen Keller is a bright, strong, energetic child—but left both blind and deaf in the wake of an illness as a baby—she is also a feral, frustrated mystery to her exhausted family. As a last resort, the Kellers send for a governess from the prestigious Perkins Institute for the Blind, and get Annie Sullivan, a lively and stubborn Yankee girl, barely out of school herself, with the experience of childhood blindness—now cured, after numerous operations—and the title of valedictorian her main recommendations.
Driven by the demons of her traumatic past, Annie, the unlikely Miracle Worker, fights to reach Helen and bring light to the darkness of her mind. But faced with the well-meaning pity of the Kellers and the fearful, furious trickery of Helen herself, it will take all of Annie’s patience, creativity, and firmness of spirit to bring about the transformation of Helen, the trapped wild creature, into Helen, the brilliant and communicative child she could become.
