My Name is Rachel Corrie is the culmination of a young American woman s diary, leading to her move to the Gaza Strip and ultimate death while attempting to stop a bull dozer from illegally destroying a Palestinian family s house And, yes, it was edited by Professor Snape Her voice is so honest she seems to allow the private audience into her every most thought When she does acknowledge shame or naivety, she does so with introspection and clear thought She philosophized about the world around her [...]

I love this play because I deeply relate to it A year and a half ago, I embarked on a journey to Palestine for the same reason as Corrie to be with the people whom my tax money exploits and oppresses And my experience and feelings were eerily similar to her writings Her passion, conviction, grief, privilege guilt they all spoke to me like a gong I knew of Corrie when I went and I met her parents in Jerusalem who came by to offer us encouragement and support But this is my first time reading her [...]

I saw this play at the Seattle Repertory Theater in 2007 Not wanting to forget Rachel, I decided to revisit the play by reading it This play is based on the writings of Rachel Corrie, a young activist from Washington State who was killed by an Israeli bulldozer in Gaza Strip in 2003 as she tried to protect a Palestinian home from demolition The play is just forty pages forty thoughtful, inspiring heart wrenching pages They tell the story of a remarkable young woman who was deeply moved by the wo [...]

I wish I could see this onstage I direct theatre for a living, so I can usually visualize a play in my head, but this one defeated me A one man show is tricky thing to pull off, both for the actor and the audience There is literally nothing else to watch than the main character, and Rachel Corrie s voice the play is verbatim transcriptions of her words, derived from journals, letters, emails, lists, etc shaped by Alan Rickman for a production doesn t become truly compelling until the last five o [...]

My Name Is Rachel Corrie is a verbatim playtext drawn from the writings of a woman who was, at the age of 23, murdered by an Israeli bulldozer driver as she stood between his vehicle and a house belonging to a Palestinian that was about to be unlawfully destroyed Edited by Alan Rickman and Katharine Viner, this is a play which, whilst innately concerned with history, pays no lip service to truthful modes of representation Instead, through Corrie s highly subjective and personalised writings, the [...]

When I took this book home to read from the library, I realized that my friend s mother had told me a while ago that there was a play in London that was based on Rachel Corrie s life Before reading the book, I knew nothing about this woman I didn t know who she was, where she was from, or what she did I really enjoyed reading this book, though, and it s clear that Rachel Corrie is someone who made a big impact Although it was short, Rachel s actual writing in My Name is Rachel Corrie made her se [...]

I know there s some controversy regarding this play which is made of edited portions of Rachel Corrie s diary and how the Israeli Palestinian conflict is portrayed in it But what I took from the play was not as much a political message as it was a profile of a passionate young girl who truly wanted to make a difference in the world People can argue if she went about that the right way, if she was too naive, etc but in an era of dispassion and apathy, I think her desire to make a difference was a [...]

On March 16, 2003 Rachel Corrie stood in front of a Palestinean home in the Gaza Strip in hopes of saving it from Israeli forces She was run down by a bulldozer This play is made up of exerpts of her journal entries and emails to friends and family At twenty three years old, Rachel Corrie was stubborn, yet passionate, and utterly selfless Her words are beautiful and raw, an expression of who she truly was a martyr.

I feel terrible giving this play a two star marking but this is a play to be seen rather than read Reading the play at times feels disjointed and rather stream of consciousness Additionally, you cannot help but arrive at the view that it could have been better edited, however, on the stage the same text you felt is so problematic comes alive and you are elated, entertained and unsettled in equal measure.

A one person play to make you angry and tearful Rachel Corrie was an American college activist during the second intifada in Palestine and was killed trying to prevent the demolition of civilian houses by the Israeli Defense Forces It s a story as much about the collective punishment borne by the Palestinians as it is about an idealistic young woman trying to make a difference Beautifully written and saddening.

Despite its political content, the play is simply a stream of consciousness, one which I personally identify with I loved that it was about the desire to change the world, even though it is impossible Rachel wanted to make a difference, and the play s structure is exactly how anyone thinks about making a change, through questioning their existence.

Everyone Must Feel Safe The ceiling in Rachel Corrie s second grade classroom had rules hanging from it Years later, the only one she remembered was Everyone Must Feel Safe That rule seems a philosophical impetus to joining the International Solidarity Movement in Gaza in 2003 From a literary perspective, I m intrigued at how well the play uses non dialogue devices as tools for characterization At one point, Corrie reads from her notebook she recites a list of five people who she d like to hang [...]

I hadn t imagined the play would be such a hard read, and that capturing Capturing because of the free spirit of Rachel, and hard because it lays out, in bare bones, the brutality of the Israeli military machine, and the destruction of Palestinian homes, land, lives, livelihood, but not spirit The play doesn t idolise Rachel and presents a girl with dreams and ideas These ideas, however, have amazing insights on life, humanity, and world politics Must read, particularly because of its short leng [...]

In the vein of The Laramie Project and Twilight Los Angeles, My Name is Rachel Corrie is a one woman play complied of e mails, journals, and documents left behind when Rachel Corrie was killed by a tank in Gaza in 2003 Corrie s writings are articulate and sophisticated, and her voice as a young, socially engaged woman comes through loud and clear Although I love the idea of this piece in theory, in practice it s a bit difficult to piece together the story, and, I think, significant background in [...]

A powerful, thought provoking and deeply moving piece of theatre Rachel Corrie s perspective in the Palestine Israeli conflict is illuminating Theatre can t change the world But what it can do, when it s as good as this, is to send us out enriched by other people s passionate concern Gardian I saw the play premiered at London s Royal Court Theatre, with an award winning, sold out run, before its transfer to the West End.

Read this book Tuesday, it is always nice to sit down and read a play in one setting It was hard for me to picture how something like this might get staged though It appears that she was a lovely, thoughtful, whimsical person as well as something of a naive hippie The play left me wondering if it is only ever naive hippies who believe in a better world enough to put their life on the line for it

Rachel Corrie was killed while protesting the destruction of homes in Gaza This play, edited from her diaries by Alan Rickman, reveals a passionate and energetic young woman, committed not only to social justice but to finding her own path while respecting that of others, and living life to the full.

Purposely run over by an Israeli bulldozer on purpose Rachel Corrie has still not received any justice Rachel is a martyr for peace in Palestine I had the privilege of meeting Rachel s parents in front of Cat headquarters in Peoria, Il this probably colors my review If you dear reader are hostile towards the Palestinians, you will probably not like this book.
