The miracle worker
Heim, Caroline L. & Heim, Christian (2009) The miracle worker. [Live Performance (Play)]
Helen Keller’s fight to speak, to understand, to love aided by her teacher Annie Sullivan was nothing short of a miracle. This is her story. Crossbow Productions staged six performances of The Miracle Worker at the Brisbane Powerhouse in June 2009 to raise awareness of people living with disabilities. The play was shadow signed for the hearing impaired and tactile tours of the set were held before each performance for the vision impaired. Over 200 hearing and vision impaired attended and 70 of these had never been to the theatre before. I’m deaf and we should be able to go to anything, and you’ve done that for us. As a blind person, I got a great deal from it. I found it extremely moving. There should be a thousand or so in the audience rather than a hundred so that everyone can experience it.
