We are staging a production of the critically acclaimed play 'My Name Is Rachel Corrie' to raise money for humanitarian relief in Gaza.

by TheatreforCeasefire in London, Greater London, United Kingdom

We are staging ‘My Name is Rachel Corrie’ at the Old Red Lion Theatre between the 25th - 30th June 2024. The Show is a fundraiser to help Palestinian British writer Ahmed Masoud's family in Gaza. Ahmed's brother was killed by an Israeli strike in January and his family's house was destroyed. Three of his siblings also lost their homes. Ahmed is now fundraising to support his family in Gaza as well as get his mum and sister out to receive urgent medication in Egypt"

 Palestinian civilians are enduring a humanitarian crisis, as a result of the significant bombing of heavily populated high-density cities, with what little aid has entered the territories being insufficient to support the population which is facing starvation, disease, energy shortages, and mass casualties, with over 30,000 men, women, and children having already died. 

By sharing Rachel’s story, her experiences of seeing the treatment of Palestinians first-hand, and her views of the conflict, we hope to show Western audiences that, despite their distance from the conflict, this is an issue that has been present for a long time and that by gaining a better understanding and a broader viewpoint on the issue, they can feel more comfortable and confident in learning and discussing these subject matters and to engage in the most pressing issues of the world without fear of ignorance. 

Through both ticket sales and voluntary donations at the performance, we aim to reach a target of £6000 that will all go towards providing aid and the means to support Ahmed's family. We believe that this production can raise a higher income than simply arranging a crowdfunding campaign on its own, especially as we will be looking to continue aiming to produce this show and use the money raised to raise money for humanitarian causes.
