Directed by CoCo Morrison and produced by Robyn Aichele, this production will take the audience through the experiences of Helen Keller’s triumphs over adversity. When Helen was 19 months old she became ill and was left deaf and blind. With the help of her teacher and lifelong companion, Anne Sullivan, Helen learned to communicate by use of sign language.

Feel the pain, frustration and love that parents, a child and a teacher endure when struggling with and overcoming a disability. The exchanges that take place are derived from factual events that have been woven together by William Gibson (author) to create a fluid and emotional depiction of the “miracle” of Anne Sullivan teaching Helen Keller sign language. Pictured are a few members of the cast of 22.
