“Extraordinary power...Funny, passionate, bristling with idealism and luminously intelligent.” - Time Out London

Shape Shift and Embers Collective proudly present My Name Is Rachel Corrie, an award-winning one-woman play constructed from the diary entries and letters of American activist, Rachel Corrie.

Rachel was born in Olympia, Washington, in 1979. She had a wicked sense of humour and an unquenchable social conscience.

In January 2003, she travelled to the Gaza Strip as a member of the International Solidarity Movement. In March that year she was killed by an Israeli military bulldozer whilst peacefully protesting the demolition of a Palestinian home.

She was just 23 years old.

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, real-life heroine. Through Rachel’s words we are invited to confront the universal questions: How do we find our path in life? What impact do our actions have on others? and How can one individual change the world for the better?

Written by: Rachel Corrie
Co-edited by: actor/ director Alan Rickman, and journalist Katharine Viner
Directed by: Alexandra Whitham
