Alabama Bicentennial:The Evolution of the Miracle Worker

Most Americans have derived their knowledge of Helen Keller’s childhood from William Gibson’s play The Miracle Worker, which was transferred to the screen in 1962.

Alabama Bicentennial: The Evolution of the Miracle Worker

Thursday, August 1, from 6:30-7:30 p.m. Large Auditorium

Brown will dissect Gibson’s play and highlight those parts which originated in Keller’s autobiography, Sullivan’s letters and Gibson’s imagination. The presentation will show how different directors and actors have re-imagined Keller’s life to suit their times and the demands of cinema.
