Overview

THE STORY: On March 16, 2003, Rachel Corrie, a twenty-three-year-old American, was crushed to death by an Israeli Army bulldozer in Gaza as she was trying to prevent the demolition of a Palestinian home. MY NAME IS RACHEL CORRIE is a one-woman play composed from Rachel's own journals, letters and emails-creating a portrait of a messy, articulate, Salvador Dali-loving chain-smoker (with a passion for the music of Pat Benatar), who left her home and school in Olympia, Washington, to work as an activist in the heart of Israeli-Palestinian conflict. In the three sold-out London runs since its Royal Court premiere, the piece has been surrounded by both controversy and impassioned proponents, and has raised an unprecedented call to support political work and the difficult discourse it creates.

This is a deeply moving play, taken from the journals and correspondence of Rachel Corrie. Despite its political overtones, it has great warmth and humor. Highly recommended.

A short read that sheds light on an aspect of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict not regularly covered by the mainstream U.S. media. Educational, inspiring and enriching. May there someday be a peaceful resolution that respects the humanity of all.
