A show opening next week at the Queens Theatre is drawing attention to how people treat others with disabilities. 

The curtain will rise on "The Miracle Worker" on Friday, May 12.

The play by William Gibson tells the story of disabilities activist Helen Keller and her teacher Annie Sullivan.

Director Brant Russell says that unlike other interpretations of the play that focus on the two main characters, this one will dig into relationships.

"I hope this production will cause us to re-examine the ways in which we incorporate people with disabilities into our lives," said Director, Brant Russell.

"I think that we're digging in to some of the trickier, uglier parts of what this moment of history might have been and so I think people might be suprised by how not pretty it always is," said Actor, Betsy Hogg.

The show will run through May 21st.
