Extraordinary power Funny, passionate, bristling with idealism and luminously intelligent.” TimeOut London
Deeply moving The directness, the humor, the poetry, the capcious-yet-never-morbid conscience: all of these are beautifully captured.” Indepndent (London)
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.” Michael Billington, Guardian (London)
An impassioned eulogy It’s hard not to be impressed and also somewhat frightened by the description of her as a two-year-old looking across Capital Lake in Washington State and announcing, This is the wide world, and I’m coming to it.’” Matt Wolf, New York Times
FOUR STARS: Cerebral or emotional, however, you cannot come away without plenty to think about.” Raymond Whitakar, Independent
Alan Rickman and Katharine Viner, who have edited Corrie’s writings, offer a fully rounded picture of this passionate, idealistic and at times infuriating young woman quarrelling with Corrie’s occasionally glib convictions, even as you admire her courage, lends the show dramatic tension, and forces you to try to tidy up your own muddled thinking on this vexed subject. And there is no doubt that Corrie was a natural writer, who described life in Gaza with rare power and precision. One leaves the theatre mourning not only Rachel Corrie’s death but also one’s own loss of the idealism and reckless courage of youth.” Charles Spencer, Daily Telegraph
FOUR STARS: My Name is Rachel Corrie is a true and profoundly moving story. As a piece of theatre, it belongs to verbatim genre, pieced together by Alan Rickman and the journalist Katherine Viner from the diaries, e-mails and lists of extremely articulate, committed, courageous idealist Rachel Corrie. This drama is many things. It’s a piece about growing up in America today, it’s a piece about the nature of heroism; it’s a beautifully written and structured chronicle of a death of a foretold.” Georgina Brown, Mail on Sunday
