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. In January 2003 Rachel traveled to Gaza with the International Solidarity Movement to defend Palestinian homes from being demolished and water resources from being destroyed. Just weeks after her arrival, on March 16th, 2003, she was crushed to death by an Israeli bulldozer while protecting her host family's home from being destroyed by the Israeli Occupational Forces.

Over the course of the play, Rachel matures from an insightful young girl, to a scattered adolescent immersed in the manic search for self, to a young woman determined to pursue peace and justice in a place she's never been for people she's never met. We witness the awakening of her personal and political consciousness as she constantly questions herself, her privilege, what it means to be an American, and ultimately, what it means to stand up for something, even if you are standing alone.

This award winning, critically acclaimed show is performed by Ashley Malloy*. 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. Rachel's parents Craig and Cindy Corrie have attended several of Ashley's performances and continue to support Ashley's 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 Rachel's death, in her hometown of Olympia, Washington. Ashley has performed in 60 cities nationwide, often sponsored by chapters of Jewish Voice for Peace, Students for Justice in Palestine and small but mighty progressive theater companies. Ashley has performed at North Carolina State Co/Immediate Theatre Project in Asheville NC, Resurrection Theater Co at 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, Bates College, and at Rachel's school, The Evergreen State College, just to name a few. Ashley is now a rising third year in American Conservatory Theater's MFA Acting program in San Francisco.

Malloy's portrayal of each and every stage of Corrie's development is immaculate. Within the space of about 90 minutes, she smoothly moves the character from a franticly earnest youth to an extremely bewildered but present and determined and articulate young adult.-Rochester City Newspaper

[Malloys] youthful energy is electric, and she builds knowledge and awareness with her character in a progression that is subtle and transfixing.Malloy conveys the tragedy of all the people touched in this story, a Palestinian gardener, Rachels mother, Rachel at various stages in life, with acute sensibility.-New York Theatre Guide

My Name is Rachel Corrie, starring Ashley Malloy, runs August 17th-19th in American Conservatory Theater's Costume Shop Theater at 1117 Market Street, San Francisco.




*Malloy is a proud member of Actor's Equity Association.
