My Name is Rachel Corrie
Taken from the writings of Rachel Corrie
Edited by Alan Rickman and Katharine Viner
Directed by Mumbi Tindyebwa Otu
Oct 17-20, 2012
In 2003 Rachel Corrie, a 23 year-old American student, was crushed to death by an Israeli Army bulldozer as she was trying to stop the demolition of a Palestinian home in Gaza. My Name is Rachel Corrie is a controversial, passionate and stunning account of one woman’s participation in events that most of us only experienced through watching the news. Since its sold-out opening in 2005, My Name is Rachel Corrie has acted as a catalyst for discussion and an eye-opener to the impact of western foreign policies on people living thousands of miles away.
Here is a play where the real dialogue begins when the curtain comes down. My Name is Rachel Corrie is theater that not only stirs our hearts but sticks in our heads. – Newsweek
Extraordinary power…funny, passionate, bristling with idealism and luminously intelligent. – London’s Time Out
Warning: contains coarse language and provocative subject matter.
