“The Miracle Worker” in Anathan Theatre
Join the Franciscan University’s Theatre Department as their spring performance, The Miracle Worker, imparts hard lessons about the struggles and value of tough love.
The Miracle Worker is the true story of the relationship between deaf-blind prodigy Helen Keller, and her life-long teacher and friend, Annie Sullivan. As a last resort before institutionalizing her, Annie fights to teach Helen to communicate in order to heal not only Helen herself, but the broken family from which she comes.
