William Gibson's play was regarded as a timeless tale that had been initiated in television. It was performed successfully on stage, and soon became a film classic before Gibson retired to make plays for high school drama departments. However, it is important to note that Helen Keller and Annie Sullivan's story initiated as a ballet. When Gibson was coordinating plays with patients at the Riggs Center, he met Richard Dyer-Bennett whose wife Mel was asked to be hired as a physical action therapist for the activities program at Riggs as she previously had worked as a dancer. Years earlier, Gibson was able to read some of Anne Sullivan's letters as she served as Helen Keller's teacher. Helen Keller's The Story of My Life was found to be censored as the real book was supposed to be composed of Helen's Story of My Life, John Macy'S essay on Annie Sullivan's pedagogical techniques, and Annie's letters to the Perkins Institute.
