The Miracle Worker by Conestoga High School in Berwyn, PA November 20, 2018 Review submitted by Phoebe Barr of Episcopal Academy The story of Helen Keller, of a blind and deaf child who grew to be a prolific author and activist, is compelling in its own right.  The Miracle Worker delivers the powerful tale of the once-blind governess Annie Sullivan who teaches Helen language.

The heat outside does not equate to the hea...
