The Miracle Worker
by William Gibson
Knoxville Children’s Theatre (109 E. Churchwell Avenue)
March 31 through April 16, Thursdays and Fridays at 7 PM; Saturdays at 1 PM and 5 PM; Sundays at 3 PM.

Trapped in a secret, silent world, unable to communicate, young Helen Keller is violent, spoiled, almost subhuman, and treated by her family as such.  Only Annie Sullivan, a young Irish teacher, realizes there is a mind and spirit inside Helen, waiting to be rescued from the dark and tortured silence.  Featuring landmark scenes of emotional intensity, the play crescendos with the utterance of a single, glorious word: “Water.”  Helen’s true-life transformation has become an unforgettable odyssey for audiences all around the world.
