March 2003. The Gaza Strip. 23 year old Rachel Corrie stands between a Palestinian house and an armoured bulldozer.
Meet the heroine behind the headlines. This play captures the idealism, the blazing eloquence, the sardonic wit in Rachel’s vivid diary entries.
Josh Roche, winner of the JMK Award 2017, directs this stirring, troubling account of an extraordinary young woman’s overwhelming commitment to her cause.
"Powerful, thought-provoking, deeply moving" The Daily Telegraph
★★★★ "Erin Doherty emerges as one of the year's great discoveries with a stunning performance" The Guardian
★★★★ "Erin Doherty is riveting as Corrie...humorous and humanising" The Stage
★★★★ "Josh Roche's brilliant staging" Whatsonstage
