"My Name is Rachel Corrie" is based on the diaries and letters of an American activist and Evergreen University student who was killed by an Israeli-operated bulldozer in 2003. The play, edited by Alan Rickman, who originally directed it, and journalist Katharine Viner, gives the audience an intimate window into Rachel's experience of Gaza and the Israeli occupation.
ani and Lyn will speak with Rachel Corrie's parents, Cindy and Craig Corrie, about their daughter's life, activism, and the award-winning play.
Based on the diaries of an American activist and Evergreen University student who was killed by an Israeli-operated Caterpillar bulldozer in 2003, the play gives the audience an intimate window into Rachel's experience of Gaza and her dedication to Palestinian rights and liberation.
The performance will be followed by a discussion with the actor and director. Both are involved in Palestine solidarity and will be raising money for the Jenin Freedom Theater through this performance tour. We are asking a suggested donation of $10 but none will be turned away for lack of funds. Tickets are first-come, first-serve- please be early to ensure your place.
