One of the most well-loved stories in the American theater, The Miracle Worker dramatizes the real-life relationship of the deaf and blind girl Helen Keller and her newly hired governess, Anne Sullivan, who finds a way to break through the silence and darkness of the girls existence. The new Country Playhouse production of the play will be told, in part, from Kellers perspective. This will be a unique production of The Miracle Worker in the intimacy of the space, says director Jonathan Gonzales. We shall be utilizing some stylized, non-realistic techniques with sound and lights to bring the audience directly into Helen Kellers emergence from being deaf, blind and mute into a world of wonderful new possibilities. 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, 2 p.m. April 3 and 7:30 p.m. April 7. Through April 9. Country Playhouse, 12802 Queensbury Lane. For information, call 713-467-4497 or visit www.countryplayhouse.org. $12 to $20.
