MY NAME IS RACHEL CORRIE

Dates: 15 Mar - 15 Mar

Tickets: €28

Reading and a panel discussion presented by Amnesty International Irish Section in association with Fishamble: The New Play Company.

A play that was postponed indefinitely in New York and cancelled in Canada. A true story of Rachel Corrie, a 23-year-old American, who travelled as a peace activist to the Gaza strip, where she was killed by an Israel Defense Forces Caterpillar D9 bulldozer in March 2003, while attempting to prevent a demolition of a home in a Palestinian residential area of Rafah. Rachel was a gifted person, an idealistic humanitarian; her journals and emails from her time in Palestine have been edited by Katherine Viner and Alan Rickman, who directed the acclaimed play, “My Name is Rachael Corrie”, first staged in April 2005 at the Royal Court Theatre, London. It went on to win the Theatregoers’ Choice Awards for Best Director and Best New Play, as well as Best Solo Performance. On the fifth anniversary of Rachel’s death, Amnesty International in association with Fishamble: The New Play Company are pleased to present this special one-off reading of the play. A panel discussion with Amnesty International, the guest panellist and speakers will follow the reading. All Proceeds to Amnesty International.

Company Philip Connaughton presents MAMAFESTA MEMORIALISING (To not forget or be forgotten)

This month critically acclaimed choreographer Philip Connaughton brings his beautiful, sparkling, laugh-out-loud meditation on the fear of forgetting and of being forgotten to Cork and Dublin venues. Mamafesta Memorialising, which enjoyed its successful international premiere in France last year, is woven from inspirations including musical theatre, Bruce Forsythe’s Generation Game and most importantly, Philip’s mum Madeleine, who has senile dementia. Philip made his last piece, Assisted Solo, about her. But it wasn’t enough. He still has more to do and more to say. He’s worried that what’s happening to her will happen to him. His latest testimony to an ever-evolving,…
