William Gibson's play and the true story behind it caught my attention at a young age. Annie's perseverance and Helen's struggle to communicate and be a part of the world around her was universal. Shortly after, I saw the 1962 Oscar-winning play and was blown away at the power of the performances. I knew I had to direct the play myself in the future. As I write this, my goal has become a reality as the Banzerini House brings the story to life on stage again.

As you can imagine it's been a lot of hard work. Right now, blocking is complete and we are “off-book” which means the cast has their lines memorized. I couldn't be more proud of the entire production, most importantly the cast and crew. See their bios HERE.

In life, there are always challenges, even heartbreak, in pursuing our dreams and I know first hand how disheartening it can be. But much like the story of 'The Miracle Worker' I am reminded that no matter how trapped we may feel, there is always someone or something to pull us out of the darkness.

Be Creative,

Angela Lavelle
