MY NAME IS RACHEL CORRIE
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 Dalì-loving chain smoker, who left her home in Olympia, Washington, “to support non-violent resistance to Israel’s military occupation.” A passionate and powerfully honest insight into one of the most complicated international political conflicts that continues to resonate across the world.
Rachel’s writings were edited by British actor Alan Rickman and Guardian editor Katharine Viner.
Performed by MAIRI PHILLIPS, directed by ROS PHILIPS; produced by MULL THEATRE in association with RT PRODUCTIONS and SPHINX THEATRE

“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”
