What: Rachel Corrie was only 23-years-old when she was killed. The American peace activist’s life was taken away by an Israeli army bulldozer, while she protested the demolition of a Palestinian home in 2003.
The University of La Verne is hosting a performance of the play, “My Name is Rachel Corrie,” this month to share with viewers her perspective and writings, while she lived in the Gaza Strip.
Edited by British actor Alan Rickman and journalist Katharine Viner, the one-woman play is assembled from journal entries and e-mail messages written by Corrie. The play first staged in April 2005 at the Royal Court Theatre in London. Since then, it has traveled around the world, helping keep Corrie’s story alive.
When: Saturday, April 14, 2012
Where: University of La Verne – (Ann & Steve Morgan Auditorium; located in Founders Hall)
1950 Third Street, La Verne, CA
