Rachel Corrie’s Story Heads to the Stage.
What would induce a young woman to leave her small American town to fight for the rights of a group of people she hardly knew?
In My Name is Rachel Corrie – the story of the life, and death, of a 23-year-old peace activist in Gaza – we find out.
On 16 March 2003, Corrie’s life came to an abrupt end when she was crushed by an Israeli Army bulldozer while trying to stop the demolition of a Palestinian building in the Rafah refugee camp.
She left behind a series of diaries, written from when she was 12 right up to her life as a student activist, as well as emails from her time in Gaza.
