The Miracle Worker Play

Playwright William Gibson’s epic drama The Miracle Worker is performed on the grounds of Ivy Green each year on weekends from early June through mid July. 

Celebrating more than 60 years of outdoor performances at the birthplace of “America’s First Lady of Courage,” the play carries the audience through Helen’s illness, the tribulations of her condition, Anne Sullivan’s arrival and then the miraculous breakthrough of the young Helen Keller at the guidance of her teacher, “The Miracle Worker”, with authentic costumes and sets and professional acting.

The show is produced by the Helen Keller Foundation, Inc, a non-profit organization and directed by Caroline Self.
