William Gibson's classic Pulitzer Prize, Tony Award-winning play, The Miracle Worker, is timeless in its rapturous evocation of one young woman's obsessive determination to bring a wild, blind, deaf, and mute girl the gift of language. In the process of freeing Helen from the bonds of her disabilities, teacher Annie Sullivan and the Keller family discover you can't change your life without changing yourself.
The story of Helen Keller with its triumphant message of love's power to overcome adversity has inspired audiences young and old to seek out -- no matter how arduous the search may be -- the vast richness of a life fully lived.
Gary M. English directs for the Berkshire Theatre Festival.
