What’s On: ATC’s The Miracle Worker


The Miracle Worker is a powerful tale of overcoming adversity following Helen Keller. 7 -30 May, ASB Waterfront Theatre

Everyone has a voice.

Blind. Deaf. Cast into a world of silence and darkness at the age of 19 months, young Helen Keller feels angry and isolated. She’s been robbed of the most basic of human abilities, the ability to communicate.

But Helen’s boundless determination meets its match with young teacher Annie Sullivan – only partially sighted herself, but full of passion, innovation and determination. And after months of intense struggle, an astonishing breakthrough will change not just Helen’s life but also the lives of blind and deaf people across the world.

William Gibson’s Tony Award-winning The Miracle Worker has inspired audiences for decades with its powerful tale of overcoming adversity, just as Helen Keller herself has inspired countless people by proving no barrier is too great to overcome. Discover the story behind the legend as ATC proudly brings this must-see, emotionally uplifting theatre classic to a new generation.
