About the Play:
The play, whatever you may feel about its quality as drama, is an important documentation of historic events and provides a realistic account of the difficulties experienced by all individuals with sensory deprivations of both hearing and vision. The difficulties portrayed in Miss Keller's education are not dissimilar to educating today's deaf-blind children; however, there are some basic differences when comparing Miss Keller to the children we are educating today. Differences also exist between lack of services in Miss Keller's time and society's provisions and concerns for these children today.

--Ralph L. Peabody
