On March 16, 2003, Rachel Corrie, a 23-year-old American, was killed by an Israeli military bulldozer in the Gaza Strip as she was trying to prevent the demolition of Palestinian homes. 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, skinny, articulate, Salvador Dali-loving chain smoker, who left her home in Olympia, Washington, “to support non-violent resistance to Israel’s military occupation.”
Rachel’s writings were edited by British actor Alan Rickman and Guardian editor Katharine Viner. This multi-award winning show is a powerfully honest insight into one of the most complicated international political conflicts that continues to resonate across the world.
