Helen Keller lives in a prison of silence and darkness. As a last chance before she is institutionalized, her parents contact Annie Sullivan, a dedicated teacher. As Sullivan struggles to reach Helen, she must also confront the obstacles in Helen's family: a domineering father, a heartbroken mother and a resentful son. The Miracle Worker is the powerful true story of one of the most inspirational figures of all time.

How does audio description work?
The trained describer sits in a soundproof booth or box in the theatre and explains what is happening on stage. Visually impaired theatre-goers are equipped with a headset or earpiece before the performance and the description is relayed from the booth to the headset/ear-piece via an infrared or radio sound system.
