The critically acclaimed NY production of “My Name Is Rachel Corrie” comes to San Francisco for a limited run at the Magic Theatre.
“My Name Is Rachel Corrie” is a one-woman play composed from Rachel’s own journals, letters and e-mails – 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 the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. In the three sold-out London runs since its Royal Court premier, 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.
"Funny, passionate, luminously intelligent."
- Time Out London
"Theatre can't change the world. But what it can do, when it's as good as this, is send us out enriched by other people's passionate concern."
- The Guardian
Saturday April 29 - actor Charlotte Hemmings and director Jonathan Kane
Wednesday May 3rd - Rachel's parents, Craig and Cindy Corrie
Thursday May 4th - Rachel's parents, Craig and Cindy Corrie
