“All of the exchanges in the play are derived from factual events, but woven together in such a way that we, the audience, are allowed to experience the ‘miracle’ that Ms. Sullivan was able to work – how Helen connected spelling a word to understanding language. Helen called it her soul’s sudden awakening,” said Kate Buckley, director.

Productions remaining in the 2014-2015 Season include: “4000 Miles,” “A Christmas Carol,” “Master Harold…and the boys,” “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” “A Shayna Maidel,” and “The Threepenny Opera.”
