The Miracle Worker
By William Gibson
Three years after Ann Bancroft and Patty Duke premiered the show on Broadway in 1959, the Madison Theatre Guild presented its first production of William Gibson's The Miracle Worker, the inspiring story of the meeting of Helen Keller and Annie Sullivan and the beginning of a relationship that would last a lifetime and inspire the world.. The play tells the story of a 7 year old girl and her 19 year old teacher who taught us all that there are no boundaries to courage and faith. Until her death in 1968, Helen Keller was a leading public figure who campaigned tirelessly, not only on the behalf of the disabled, but on behalf of civil rights, human dignity, women's suffrage and world peace. Return with us to the rural Alabama of 1887 and the miracle that changed all of our lives.
