"A STIRRING PORTRAIT! The preternaturally talented CASEY TURNER is BREATHTAKING...an exquisite physical performance."
- Portland Phoenix, March 12, 2014
"POWERFUL! A HARD-HITTING PERFORMANCE! CASEY TURNER is PASSIONATE, SOBERING and AWE-INSPIRING! She doesn't miss a beat."
- Portland Press Herald, March 10, 2014
Casey Turner (DRC's Tigers Be Still) stars in MY NAME IS RACHEL CORRIE a one-woman play composed from Rachel's own journals, letters and emails. This true story is a portrait of a messy, articulate, Salvador Dali-loving chain-smoker (with a passion for the music of Pat Benatar), who left her home and school in Olympia, Washington, to work as an activist in the heart of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. In the three sold-out London runs since its Royal Court premiere, the piece has been surrounded by both controversy and impassioned proponents, and has raised an unprecedented call to support political work and the difficult discourse it creates.
"Here is a play where the real dialogue begins when the curtain comes down. MY NAME IS RACHEL CORRIE is theater that not only stirs our hearts but sticks in our heads." - Newsweek
"You feel you have not just had a night at the theatre: You have encountered an extraordinary woman [in this] stunning account of one woman's passionate response... theatre can't change the world. But what it can do, when it's as good as this, is to send us out enriched by other people's passionate concern."
- Guardian (London)
"Extraordinary power...funny, passionate, bristling with idealism and luminously intelligent." - Time Out London
