Immortalized onstage and screen by Anne Bancroft and Patty Duke, “The Miracle Worker” tells the story of Annie Sullivan and her student, blind and mute Helen Keller. This American classic dramatizes the volatile relationship between the lonely teacher and her charge. Trapped in a secret, silent world, unable to communicate, Helen is violent, spoiled, almost sub-human and treated by her family as such. Only Annie realizes that there is a mind and spirit waiting to be rescued from the dark, tortured silence. With scenes of intense physical and emotional dynamism, Annie’s success with Helen finally comes with the utterance of a single, glorious word: “water.”

Watch the transformation unfold at Sutter Street Theatre, presenting “The Miracle Worker” by William Gibson. This production is directed by Allen Schmeltz.
