One of my favorite plays the story of Anne Sullivan breaking through the darkness and silence of Helen Keller s world to teach her the very concept of language It reads incredibly well but if you must see it in action check out the classic film version with Anne Bancroft and Patty Duke and absolutely DO NOT WATCH THE REMAKE It is craptacular to the extreme I just finished a run at the Hale Center Theater in Orem playing Helen Keller s mother Kate and it positively changed my life forever I do love a story of ordinary people doing extraordinary thingsFAVORITE MONOLOGUEAnne Sullivan I wanted to teach you oh everything the earth is full of Helen everything on it that s ours for a wink and it s gone and what we are on it the light we bring to it and leave behind in words why you can see five thousand years back in a light of words everything we feel think know and share in words so not a soul is in darkness or done with even in the grave

My paternal grandmother lived in Kansas City in the early 20th century The music halls in Kansas City were cheap and accessible in those days and many widely known figures would come to play in Kansas City Helen Keller was one of those players My grandmother said that Helen had to have an interpreter present on stage not only to convey uestions to her but to interpret her spoken words since Helen never really mastered speaking well enough to be understood by strangers At the times my grandmother saw Helen the companion was not her beloved Teacher but Helen s sister MildredI ve read many versions of Helen s story and so I m not sure whether the significance of this sister is included in the play As Helen herself later recounted Helen came in and found her baby sister lying in the crib Helen was accustomed to put her own doll in Helen unceremoniously dumped her sister out of the cradle fortunately somebody witnessed the incident and caught the baby as she fell and put her doll in the cradleIt was this incident that made the already frantic efforts of Helen s family to get a cure for her all the desperate It was because her family had refused to believe there was no cure for her blindness and deafness that they had insisted on a cure INSTEAD of having her educated Really she should have begun getting tuition immediately after she lost her sight and hearing at 19 months It wouldn t have done any harm even if she were curable but if there was no cure it was essentialWhen they reached the stage of desperation they took Helen to see Dr Alexander Graham Bell who agreed with other doctors that Helen s disabilities were not curable but who pointed out that it was possible to educate herThe play tells about Annie Sullivan s history than most sources taken from her letters probably though it doesn t go on to deal with other things such as that Annie was not formerly blind She had to tend her eyes very carefully even in this period and had to have operations to restore her sight several times afterward because they re after the period of the storyI have to say that I do understand the urgency of the situation Though it s not true that Helen had learned nothing before she had developed a sort of gestural pidgin which was probably effective than anybody gives it credit for if it had been left much longer it s doubtful Helen would have been able to develop the remarkable linguistic skills she later had She might have been able to learn a little language Laura Bridgman the first recipient of training in fingerspelling was limited in her linguistic capacities and this may be because she was already eight when her teaching began but it s unlikely that Helen would have gotten as good at it as she did Nevertheless I can t go along with the people who argue that the cruel treatment Annie meted out was justifiable Granted Annie was uite young at the time and she hadn t really been given much training in education methods But stillthere were no doubt better ways to teach even an obstinate child like Helen A preliminary study of the pidgin Helen and her family had developed would have been a good startThe miracle in the title is well described by Helen in her own works It s a little disturbing that the vital word had to go back to Helen s early verbalizations however Helen had after all her own sign for mother But it s interesting in another way Most children s realization that language has meaning happen so early they don t remember it Helen at seven remembered it clearly and was able to reduce it to very evocative wordsIn fact focusing on the miracle however much of a breakthrough it truly was in many ways falsifies the picture Except when Helen insisted on learning to speak because she wanted to be able to communicate with people who didn t understand fingerspelling Annie Sullivan was involved as translator tutor and aide in all of Helen s vigorous attempts at self education through college Annie insisted that she couldn t teach speech to Helen so it was farmed out But one thing that Annie DID teach Helen in this period was how to read and write This was done not only via Braille but also with a form of block printing and with type like wooden blocks and later Helen learned to use a typewriter Helen s first letters were as crude and inept as most of her age mates But she very soon mastered the smooth literary style that made her so skilled at communicatingThe main problem with this play is that it leaves Helen frozen in time as the electrified child Helen Keller turned seven in 1887 and she didn t die until 1968 a few weeks before her 88th birthday She wrote the classic Story of My Life to help pay for her college education She was uite renowned in her childhood she was friends with Mark Twain who died in 1911 but her life didn t end with her childhood One measure of how little the real woman was known is that people either never knew or forget that the adult Helen was a co founder of the ACLU Helen Keller was never in her life the angel on the hearth of Victorian fantasies She didn t stop being strong willed when she learned to communicate frustration didn t make her stubborn rather stubbornness made her frustrated since she wouldn t give up and couldn t succeed Mastering language help alleviate the frustration but not the obstinacy In her later life Keller became a fairly well known advocate of radical causes but this fact is often ignored in stories about her A postscript added to the play might not go amiss or an introduction with further information I m pretty sure the edition I read which I don t think was this one didn t have this sort of biographical information
