Deaf, blind and mute Helen Keller lives out a dark and silent existence that expresses itself only through violent and spoiled behaviour. As a last resort, her family hires a young teacher, Anne Sullivan, to help. Discovering a mind and spirit waiting to be released, Anne sets forth against all odds to help Helen break through her physical barriers and become the powerful person she truly is. A Tony Award-winning drama, the play explores love, grace and mercy in the midst of searching for a much-needed miracle.
Interesting, absorbing and moving. ~ The New York Post
