Tel-Aviv Teatronto Festival will include production of 'My Name is Rachel,' based on life and death of the human rights activist run over by IDF bulldozer.
"The words she used in her diaries, emails and messages to describe what she saw, paint a reality that is still alive," says Israeli director Ari Remez -
Ten years have passed since the day that the young American human rights activist was run over by a military bulldoze at the Philadelphia Route on the border with Gaza. Time has gone by, and the Middle East reality has moved on, but the legacy of Rachel Corrie is still alive.
This week sees the opening of the Teatronoto Festival for monodramas. One of the highlights is the production of "My Name is Rachel," a play that follows the events that led Corrie, a 24-year-old- American woman from Washington, to her death under the bulldozer, on the border with Gaza.
