When Theatre Three announced that William Gibson's The Miracle Worker was on the docket for this season, I knew it was going to be outstanding. The well-known tale is about Helen Keller, a deaf, blind, and mute child and her teacher Annie Sullivan. If you haven't read it, you may be familiar with the Patty Duke/Ann Bancroft movie. It shows a small part of how Helen was as a child; spoiled, pitied, and wild. Noticing Helen's potential, Annie plans to teach Helen a host of things like decorum and language. It is her hope that her tutelage will guide Helen to be independent.

The story of young Helen Keller and her tenacious teacher Annie Sullivan has captivated audiences and historians for years. In his 1959 play, The Miracle Worker, William Gibson documented the Keller family's journey out of darkness, thanks to Annie's disciplined tutelage. The audience moves throughout the production--retracing the Kellers' month-long emotional journey--in the beautiful Borden Building and surrounding gardens of Raleigh's Fred Fletcher Park. The action happens in and around the audience, providing for a uniquely immersive and transporting experience. Rather than watching from a cold distance, patrons are fully present inside the Keller homestead, the Perkins School for the Blind, and even within Annie Sullivan's subconscious. The production includes a diverse cast of nearly 20 artists, including a number of promising child actors and the Keller family dog.
