How You Survive In A Nonexistent Place

I am directing a new production of "My Name is Rachel Corrie", produced by Co-Op Theatre East, opening the first week of April at the Kraine Theater. The play will also be done at Pace University's Left Forum and at Bluestockings bookstore. This play is close to my heart for many reasons. Here is some more information below:

A new production of My Name is Rachel Corrie by theater company Co-Op Theatre East ( premieres at New York's Kraine Theater April 5th. COTE was founded last spring by three graduates of the Performance Studies at New York University's Tisch School of the Arts. Co-Artistic Directors Ashley Marinaccio and Robert A.K. Gonyo and Literary Director Casey Cleverly write, "Co-Op Theatre East produces socially minded performance that deals with the questions of today, the situations we find ourselves immersed in as New Yorkers, Americans, and world citizens at this moment. Edited by Alan Rickman and Katharine Viner from the writings of Rachel Corrie, a young peace activist whose life was cut tragically short, this play is a testament to the potential for one dedicated person to make a profound impact on the world."

COTE's production of My Name is Rachel Corrie is presented in collaboration with actress Theresa C. Johnson and Pace University, with support from Pace University's Office of Multicultural Affairs, Sociology/Anthropology Department, Theatre and Performing Arts Department, Project Pericles, and Pforzheimer Honors College.
