My Name is Rachel Corrie
The one person show My Name is Rachel Corrie, edited from Rachel's emails and journal entries by the late Alan Rickman and editor in chief of The Guardian, Katherine Viner, chronicles the life of the 23 year old American Peace Activist who traveled to Gaza in 2003 with the International Solidarity Movement to defend Palestinian homes from being demolished. It was there, on March 16th, 2003 that she was crushed to death by an Israeli bulldozer while protecting her host's home from being destroyed by the Israeli army.

This award winning critically acclaimed show is performed by Ashley Malloy and is directed by Josh Perlstein. The show was first performed at Central Connecticut State University in September 2013 and was subsequently presented at the annual National End the Occupation conference in Washington DC. Rachels parents Craig and Cindy Corrie have attended several of Ashley's performances and continue to support Ashleys work on the piece. The Rachel Corrie Foundation for Peace and Justice invited Ashley to perform the  play on March 16th 2014, the 11th anniversary of Rachels death, in her hometown of Olympia, Washington. Ashley has performed in more than 40 cities nationwide, often sponsored by chapters of Jewish Voice for Peace and Students for Justice in Palestine. Ashley has performed at North Carolina State Co/Immediate Theatre Project in Asheville NC, California Stage  in Sacramento, CA, at the Heartbeat Ensemble in Hartford, CT as well as universities such as Johns Hopkins, Vassar, Brown, Cornell, University of Chicago, Emory University, Hofstra University, Bates College, Florida State University and at Rachels school, The Evergreen State College, just to name a few.

Over the course of the play, Rachel matures from an insightful young girl listing the millions of things she wants to be when she grows up, to a scattered adolescent immersed in the manic search for self while battling boys and an over-involved mom, to a young woman determined to pursue peace and justice in a place she's never been for people she's never met, as she constantly questions herself, her country and the world around her, and what it is to be human.
