About the Show

In Alabama, an illness renders infant Helen Keller blind, deaf, and mute. Pitied and badly spoiled by her parents, Helen is taught no discipline and grows into a wild, angry, tantrum-throwing child. Desperate, the Kellers hire Annie Sullivan to teach their daughter. After several fierce battles with Helen, Annie teaches Helen discipline and language through persistence, a double breakthrough that changes Helen’s life and has a direct effect on the lives of everyone in the family. Based on the inspiring true story.

About the Playwright

William Gibson

American playwright William Gibson (1914–2008) first wrote The Miracle Worker for television, where it appeared as Episode 19 (February 7, 1957) in the first season of Playhouse 90, and later adapted it for the stage, debuting on Broadway on October 19, 1959.  That Broadway production won the Tony Award for Best Play in 1960, along with five other Tony Awards.

Gibson’s other works include Two for the Seesaw, which opened on Broadway in 1958 and starred Henry Fonda, along with Anne Bancroft in her Broadway debut; the book for a musical adaptation of Golden Boy by Clifford Odets; and Golda and Golda’s Balcony, two productions about the life of Prime Minister Golda Meir of Israel. The Monday After the Miracle, a sequel to The Miracle Worker had a brief run on Broadway in 1982.
