BRUNSWICK — The Theater Project Two will present two plays about Palestine/Israel, “My Name Is Rachel Corrie” and “Seven Jewish Children” on Sept. 10-12.

“My Name is Rachel Corrie” is taken from the writings of Rachel Corrie, edited by Alan Rickman and Katharine Viner. In her own words, the play allows us into portions of Rachel’s life up to the final moments before the young American was crushed under an Israeli bulldozer as she stood trying to protect a Palestinian home from destruction.

“Seven Jewish Children” was written by Caryl Churchill at the time of the 2008-09 invasion of Gaza by Israeli forces and contains seven short scenes marking important moments of recent Jewish history. The play begins with the Holocaust and ends with the invasion of Gaza in 2008-2009. It takes the form of Israeli adults deciding how they will explain those moments to their children.

A discussion will follow the plays for those who wish to stay.

The plays are being presented to raise funds to provide safe drinking water for the children of Gaza. The campaign in Maine was initiated by the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom, along with Brunswick Area PeaceWorks.

The plays will begin at 7:30 p.m. on Sept. 10-11 and at 3:30 p.m. on Sept. 12. Tickets are pay what you can, with a suggested donation of $10. For reservations, call 443-2899. The Theater Project is at 14 School St.
