"Rachel Corrie was a 23-year-old American peace activist from Olympia, Washington, who was crushed to death by an Israeli bulldozer on 16 March 2003, while undertaking nonviolent direct action to protect the home of a Palestinian family from demolition.
Since her killing, an enormous amount of solidarity activities have been carried out in her name around the world.
Rachel’s journals and emails from her time in Palestine are available in a variety of forms. 'My Name is Rachel Corrie' is a one-woman play created by Katharine Viner and Alan Rickman from these journals and emails.
On the 13th anniversary of her death, Derry born award-winning actor, Amanda Doherty performs this one-woman show at Echo Echo Dance Theatre in aid of Syrian Refugee Appeal.
