  1. So the Irondale Ensemble is putting on a separate production, not the cancelled play, right? I used to live, quite literally, right across the street from this church. I’m encouraging my Brooklyn people to check this out.

  2. Right, it’s NOT My Name is Rachel Corrie, though it likely will include some of the same writings from her.

    I know it’s not terribly close but my wife used to live on Henry St. in Brooklyn Heights. Brooklyn can be a cool place.

  3. Haha. My wife also used to live on Henry St. And yes, indeed Brooklyn can be a very cool place. That’s why it took me so long to leave.

  4. Thank god someone’s doing this. I won’t expect to see this in Ohio any time soon, but when something becomes to “edgy” for New York the word “expat” becomes more and more desirable.

    How this could be considered offensive illustrates a major problem in any peaceful resolution. Racheal Corrie wasn’t a suicide bomber, she was practicing a method of protection that the Palestinians should be pursuing. The fact that so much vitriol is directed at her for dying while performing a peaceful act of defiance shows how far we are from peace.

  5. Thanks for blogging about this! The Corrie family has endorsed the efforts of the Rachel’s Words initiative that is working to help spread her writings out to the broader American public and world.
