My Name is Rachel Corrie, a play based on the diaries and emails of Rachel Corrie, is now showing in Jerusalem. The play tells the story of Corrie, a young American woman who traveled to the Gaza Strip during the Second Intifada, who was crushed to death by a bulldozer as she was trying to prevent the demolition of a Palestinian home. Although the play has received much praise, it has also caused a storm at the Khan Theater in Jerusalem. Jerusalem’s Municipality even threatened to cut the Khan’s budget should the play go on as planned, angering many actors.
