Shape Shift and Embers Collective proudly present My Name Is Rachel Corrie, an award-winning one-woman play constructed from the diary entries and letters of American activist, Rachel Corrie.
Rachel was born in Olympia, Washington, in 1979. She had a wicked sense of humour and an unquenchable social conscience. In January 2003, she travelled to the Gaza Strip as a member of the International Solidarity Movement. In March that year she was killed by an Israeli military bulldozer whilst peacefully protesting the demolition of a Palestinian home. She was just 23 years old. What made a young woman leave her comfortable existence to fight for the rights of strangers in a war zone? Poetic, entertaining, and timely; this intimate coming-of-age story chronicles the journey of a complex, real-life heroine. Through Rachel’s words we are invited to confront the universal questions: How do we find our path in life? What impact do our actions have on others? and How can one individual change the world for the better? Written by Rachel Corrie.
Co-edited by actor/ director Alan Rickman, and journalist Katharine Viner
