FOLLOWING its sell-out season in the 80-seat Royal Court Jerwood
Theatre Upstairs, Alan Rickman's highly-acclaimed My Name
Is Rachel Corrie, makes a welcome return to the Jerwood
this coming autumn.
But this time, it's to the larger,
395-seat Jerwood Theatre Downstairs where it will run for a limited
season, from October 11 - 29, 2005.
My Name Is Rachel Corrie is an 80-minute, one-woman
play (performed by Megan Dodds), based on the writings of the
late Rachel Corrie; a 23-year-old woman who left her comfortable
American life to stand between a bulldozer and a Palestinian home.
With her family's consent, My Name Is Rachel Corrie was
developed by Katharine Viner and award-winning actor, Rickman
who will also direct this production.
