About the play:This classic piece tells the story of blind, deaf, and mute Helen Keller and her teacher, Annie Sullivan, in the 1880s in Tuscumbia, Alabama. As we follow the two through Helen’s struggle through the darkness, a clear message of hope, survival, persistence and love rings true. While Helen’s family cannot find a way to reach the stubborn, brilliant mind locked behind the silence and loneliness, Annie shows them all that there is someone in there who is trapped, waiting to be freed. This very physical, very emotional piece is testimony to the human spirit and the power of connection.
