12:120 The Miracle Worker by William Gibson

The play based on the meeting of Annie Sullivan and the wild child, Helen Keller.  I read books about Helen Keller when I was younger and knew the basic story but reading the play was a treat and I plan on watching the movie once the teenager reads it for his book club as well so we can enjoy it together.  Simply but powerfully done from the stubbornness of Annie who is determined that this girl should learn and use the mind she clearly has to the desperation of Helen's parents who love her and don't want to cause what they perceive as further pain and torment on a child that is so helpless in their eyes.
