I am pleased to announce the Off-Broadway premier of My Name is Rachel Corrie at the Minetta Lane Theater in Greenwich Village. As witnessed earlier this year through the swell of controversy surrounding the production, My Name is Rachel Corrie is a truly unprecedented theatrical event and a rare opportunity to experience Rachel’s personal courage through her own words. And for those of us who are committed to a just and peaceful resolution to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, this play is a must see. Supporting truthful representations of the Palestinian reality in the US will open the door to more of these emerging projects…which will broaden the discussion and strengthen the “conventional wisdom” push for a lasting resolution. Please lend your voices of support by attending this limited run!

I saw this play when i was in london over a year ago. Megan Dodd was playing Rachel, and she did an amazing job. the play itself was brilliant, and was well worth waiting in line two days in a row to get a return ticket. I advise everyone to see it if they can.
