MY NAME IS RACHEL CORRIE

"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, Salvador Dali–loving chain-smoker (with a passion for the music of Pat Benatar), who left her home and school in Olympia, Washington, to work as an activist in the heart of Israeli-Palestinian conflict. In the three sold-out London runs since its Royal Court premiere, the piece has been surrounded by both controversy and impassioned proponents, and has raised an unprecedented call to support political work and the difficult discourse it creates." – Dramatists Play Service, Inc.

In commemoration of the fifth anniversary of Corrie's death, Stuart's Opera
House
will host Up in Arm's* production of MY NAME IS RACHEL CORRIE. Please join us on March 16th for an evening of performance and a post-show talkback.

March 14 & 15 performances will be held at the Hahne Theater, Kantner Hall,
College Street, Athens. All performances are at 7pm.


Produced by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc., with the generous support from the Provosts Undergraduate Research Fund and Ohio University School of Theater
