Rachel Corrie play canceled

The Santa Cruz branch of WILPF regrets to announce that we have been refused permission to produce the play My Name is Rachel Corrie in Santa Cruz by the Dramatists Play Service as a professional theater group in our area currently holds exclusive rights. WILPF plans to bring the story of this remarkable young woman to Santa Cruz in May. We're sorry for any inconvenience this may have created. If you purchased tickets to the event and/or made a donation to the production, your checks will be returned to you shortly. Thanks so much for your understanding.

A 23 year old human rights activist from Olympia, Washington, Rachel Corrie was run over and killed by an Israeli military bulldozer while defending a Palestinian home from demolition in 2003. She left behind a series of diaries and emails which were crafted into a widely acclaimed and sometimes criticized play.

Continuing our yearly fund-raising event honoring courageous peaceful women, the Santa Cruz branch of Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom, the world’s oldest international women’s organization, is privileged to bring talented young actress Kelly Nixon from Arcata to star in “My Name is Rachel Corrie”.

Three performances: March 8 at 1 pm and 8 pm, March 9 at 1 pm, at the Live Oak Grange, 1900 17th Avenue, Santa Cruz. The UNA will host their International Soup Kitchen after each matinée. For play tickets and information, contact Jennifer - 476 6882 or jp [at] got.net. Play tickets on a sliding scale $15 - $20, no one turned away for lack of funds.

Please note new, accurate, times.
