Corinth Theatre-Arts Playhouse
12/12-12/15/2013
This inspiring and uplifting play tells the story of how 20-year-old Annie Sullivan, through sheer determination, taught the seemingly unteachable young Helen Keller and broke through Helen's dark and silent world. Born in 1880 in Tuscumbia, Alabama, Helen loses her sight and hearing after an illness at 19 months. Her parents love her but cannot - or will not - control her behavior, which worsens as she gets older. Desperate, the Kellers hire a teacher from Boston, and Annie arrives at the Keller home to immediate distrust and dissension. She perseveres, however, and one day, at the water pump behind the house, Helen suddenly understands what words are and how she can use them to communicate.

Actor's Playhouse
