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, Savador Dali-loving chain-smoker who left her home and school in Olympia, Washington to work as an activist in the heart of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
The play is free and open to the public. Tickets will be available at the door, 30 minutes before each performance.
