Martinsville's community theatre company, the Merry MAC Players, presents "The Miracle Worker" by William Gibson. This captivating drama tells the true story of six year old Helen Keller, left blind, deaf and mute by an illness in infancy. Helen's world is silent, dark and isolating, as she has little communication with those who love her. Desperate to reach their child, Helen's parents enlist the aid of Annie Sullivan. Through many struggles, both with Helen and her family, Annie is finally able to break through Helen's barriers.
Performances will be Friday and Saturday evenings and Sunday afternoons at the historic Depot Theatre near the courthouse square in Martinsville.
