My Name is Rachel Corrie
2 March @ 8.00 pm - 9.30 pmFree, but contribution welcome
Third and final night for this powerful dramatic treatment (by Katherine Viner and the late, great Alan Rickman) of the diaries of an activist – 23 year old Rachel Corrie, who died on 16 March 2003 standing between an armoured bulldozer and a Palestinian house. What made a young woman leave her comfortable existence to fight for the rights of strangers in a war zone? Poetic, entertaining, and timely, this intimate coming-of-age story chronicles the journey of a complex, eloquent idealist and real-life heroine. Padraig Downey of Danú Dubai (one of our 50 To Follow) directs Farrah Yassin in this stirring, troubling account of an extraordinary young woman’s overwhelming commitment to her cause.
