We are excited to announce that this summer, Seed Art Share will present William Gibson’s classic play, The Miracle Worker. Set in 1880’s Tuscumbia, Alabama, this moving story depicts the early life and education of Helen Keller, a blind and deaf girl struggling to communicate with the people who care for her most. Follow Helen, her frustrated family, and passionate teacher Annie Sullivan through the beautiful Borden Building in Raleigh’s Fred Fletcher Park. With its innovative, immersive staging, live music, and a cast of some of the Triangle’s most notable artists, The Miracle Worker is certain to become one of Seed Art Share’s favorites! Follow us on Facebook to check out show photos, interviews, and original music downloads from our porch band, The Shoalsmen.
WHAT TO EXPECT: Parking is available in the Fletcher Park lot off of Washington St. The house will open at 6:15 and upon arrival, ushers will direct patrons to a picnic and seating area in the garden. We invite the audience members to bring food, blankets, or camp chairs to enjoy live pre-show music by The Shoalsmen and the play’s exterior scenes. Once the play begins, a host will lead patrons throughout the rooms of the historic building that functions as the Keller home. Some seating is available in all scene locations. Run time is approximately 2.5 hours with one intermission.
We are honored to provided accessibility services through Arts Access. The Sunday 7:00 performance will also be audio described for patrons. *Please contact [email protected] for audio description requests.
