Marquette University’s Helfaer Theatre in Milwaukee, Wisconsin will be staging a production of My Name is Rachel Corrie on Monday, February 16th 7:30pm and Tuesday the 17th at 5pm and 8pm. Admission is free. The play is being put on as part of a senior project featuring Jennifer Shine as Rachel and is directed by Phylis Ravel. A “talk back” discussion session is scheduled to follow each of the three performances.

Rachel was protesting the destruction of Palestinian homes in the Gaza Strip.
