My Name is Rachel Corrie – Mull Theatre production touring dates


edited by Alan Rickman and Katharine Viner

TOURING FEB/MARCH 2013 – 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. This one-woman play is composed from Rachel’s own journals, letters and emails – creating a portrait of a messy, skinny, articulate, Salvador Dalí-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.

Review snippets:-
“Vivid” Guardian****
“Illuminating” Scotsman****
“Tremendous” The Herald****
“Poignant” The List****
“A theatrical tour de force based on reality, resulting in a production that feels far more truthful than any of the news broadcasts covering the events around the story”
