Parents of Gaza Activist Rachel Corrie Joins Discussions of "My Name is Rachel Corrie" at Unicorn Theatre
Craig and Cindy Corrie will appear for a discussion after the Friday and Saturday performances to discuss Rachel’s work and their participation in a Gaza aid delegation in March.
The parents of Rachel Corrie, the 23-year-old American killed by an Israeli Defense Forces bulldozer in Gaza six years ago, will visit Kansas City on Friday, April 10 and Saturday, April 11 to attend the play “My Name is Rachel Corrie” performed on the Unicorn Theatre’s Jerome Stage at 3828 Main Street, Kansas City, Missouri.
Craig and Cindy Corrie will appear for a discussion after the Friday and Saturday performances to discuss Rachel’s work and their participation in a Gaza aid delegation in March. The Corries joined 60 other people on the March delegation to Gaza, including Pulitzer Prize winning novelist Alice Walker. Delegates -- which included members of the Jewish and Muslim communities, as well as doctors, businesspeople, lawyers and college students – met with Palestinian aid groups, Gazan women, and United Nations officials. They also toured the aftermath of the three-week Israeli assault earlier this year and deliver 2,000 gift baskets to Gazan women, purchased through an outpouring of donations through the CODEPINK website to honor Gazan women.
Craig and Cindy Corrie have traveled and spoken extensively responding to interest in their daughter’s story. “We are encouraged that people throughout the U.S. and around the world want to know more. We hope and believe that in sharing Rachel’s story and ours that we continue her work—drawing attention to the plight of the Palestinian people and supporting those Israelis, Palestinians and internationals who are working determinedly to end the illegal Israeli occupation and to bring freedom, justice, and a secure peace to these two peoples,” Cindy Corrie said.
