The Miracle Worker - William Gibson’s scripted rendering of the story of teacher Anne Sullivan and student Helen Keller, who lived from before the age of two without sight or hearing, is playing at Decatur’s Princess Theatre.
Carol Puckett’s directing this Bank Street Players production, through Saturday. In-studio at WLRH this week, Puckett told us about the production, a discovery she made in casting, and why this play is so special to her. You can stream or download the extended version of her conversation with WLRH host Shane Scott here.
The show is being performed at the Princess each evening at 7, through Saturday, the 25th. There's also a matinee show scheduled for 2 PM on Saturday.
