About The Miracle Worker
The Miracle Worker is a three-act play by William Gibson based on Helen Keller's autobiography "The Story of My Life". The play takes place in Tuscumbia, Alabama, and follows the life of Helen Keller who was rendered blind, deaf, and mute by a childhood illness. We journey with Helen as she grows from a pitied and spoiled, tantrum-throwing child into a disciplined and persistent youth and adult through the aid of a governess, Annie Sullivan.
