The inspiring Tony Award©-winning play The Miracle Worker is based on the extraordinary true story of Helen Keller and her teacher Annie Sullivan. The renowned play chronicles the story of young Helen Keller, who is blind, deaf and consequently unable to speak as a result of an illness contracted in her infancy. She is trapped in a secret, silent world, unable to communicate. Pitied by her parents, Helen is taught no discipline and grows into a wild, angry, tantrum-throwing child in control of the household. Frustrated, lonely, and destructive, Helen is in danger of being sent to an institution. In desperation, her parents seek help from the Perkins Institution, which sends them Annie Sullivan to tutor their volatile daughter. Annie soon realizes there are a mind and spirit waiting to be rescued from the dark.
The Miracle Worker runs April 24 to May 12. Tickets may be purchased in person at the St. Jacobs Country Playhouse, online at www.draytonentertainment.com/miracle-worker or by calling the Box Office at (519) 747-7788 or toll free at 1-855-drayton (372-9866).
