My Name is Rachel Corrie, which was adapted from Rachel’s writings by by Alan Rickman and Katharine Viner will be part of the Contemporary American Theater Festival at Think Theater in Shepherdstown, West Virginia. It will be performed from July 5 through July 29.
CATF Producing Director Ed Herendeen writes of the festivals current offerings: “Ideas are powerful – but stories are more powerful. Lee Blessing, Rachel Corrie, Richard Dresser and Jason Grote are contemporary storytellers with original voices and independent spirits. Their voices will broaden our minds by engaging, inspiring and ultimately connecting us with the power of their stories. They can help us to formulate questions that will stimulate a conversation and dialogue throughout our community.”
