‘Miracle Worker’ begins

The William Gibson epic play The Miracle Worker is opening on the local stage of the Ennis Public Theatre tonight.
Many are familiar with the story of Helen Keller, a young woman whose infant illness left her deaf, mute and blind, but who became the inspiration for a powerful true-life tale of human determination. The Miracle Worker captures that story — the violence of her frustration, her nearness to life in an institution, her breakthroughs at the hands of teacher Annie Sullivan — in three acts.
