The Miracle Worker

The Miracle Worker

Presented by Dixie State University Theatre at Dolores Dore Eccles Fine Arts Center

The play is directed by Michael D. Eaton and produced by special arrangement with Samuel French Inc.

The Miracle Worker is the sweet story of a determined teacher who changes the life of deaf-mute trapped in a dark and uncontrolled world. In Tuscumbia, Alabama, an illness renders infant Helen Keller blind, deaf, and consequently mute (deaf-mute). Pitied and badly spoiled by her parents, Helen is taught no discipline and, by the age of six, grows into a wild, angry, tantrum-throwing child in control of the household. Desperate, the Kellers hire Anne Sullivan to serve as governess and teacher for their daughter. After several fierce battles with Helen, Anne convinces the Kellers that she needs two weeks alone with Helen in order to achieve any progress in the girl’s education. In that time, Annie teaches Helen discipline through persistence and consistency and language through hand signals, a double breakthrough that changes Helen’s life and has a direct effect on the lives of everyone in the family.
