AUGUSTA — The Holocaust and Human Rights Center of Maine will present three performances of Dramatic Repertory Company’s “My Name is Rachel Corrie” at 7 p.m. Friday, March 21; 2 p.m. Saturday, March 22 and Sunday, March 23; at the Michael Klahr Center, located on the University of Maine at Augusta campus.

A lover of cigarettes, Pat Benatar music, and non-violent communication, Rachel Corrie was a peace activist working in the Gaza Strip when she was tragically killed by an Israel Defense Forces’ armored bulldozer. Raw, optimistic and intimate, Corrie’s writings convey the immediacy of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict through the impassioned eyes of a 20-something from Olympia, Washington.

Casey Turner stars in the production which is based on the journals, letters and emails of Rachel Corrie, edited by Alan Rickman and Katharine Viner and directed by Keith Powell Beyland.

Tickets are $17 in advance, $20 at the door, and UMA students with ID are free. Advance tickets available by calling 207-621-3530 or at
