Friday, November 28, 2008
Gibson is likely most famous for the play he wrote in 1957 entitled The Miracle Worker, which was based on the autobiography of the blind and deaf woman, Helen Keller called The Story of My Life. The play, originally written for television, went on Broadway in 1960, where it later won three Tony Awards. It went on to become a movie in 1962 where it also won several Oscars.
"The act of writing makes everything possible to me. I've always found the business of writing has helped me to live," said Gibson in an interview with the Associated Press in 2003.
