Thought-provoking, Riveting, Great acting, Powerful, Relevant

See it if You are interested in a well-acted solo show about an activist in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict composed from her own journals & letters.

Don't see it if You aren't willing to be open-minded regarding a story that is sympathetic to the Palestinian cause, or don't enjoy serious solo shows. Read more

Absorbing, Edgy, Intense, Intelligent, Must see

See it if you like politics, especially Israel/Palestine, a first person pov 1-woman show that moves deftly and packs a dramatic punch, this shines!

Don't see it if you want something easy, banal, escapist. This is a thought-provoking moving portrait of a young woman becoming a martyr, deserves attention

Disappointing, Thought-provoking, Slow, Relevant, Well acted

See it if Erin Cronican does a great job bringing Rachel to life esp in her stirring idealism but she doesn't become gripping until mid-east sojourn

Don't see it if Journal edit by Viner/Rickman is clunky & dramatically dull esp in Rachel's childhood Direction is lackluster often leaving actress in limbo

Great acting, Dreadful script, Slow, Disappointing, Peculiar projections

See it if you have loads of patience for a random selection of letters, diaries & emails of a well intentioned politically unaware young woman

Don't see it if you expect a play or entertainment. This is a reading of responses of an unprepared middle class American to seeing poverty in a war zone.

Intense, Slow, Thought-provoking, Sincere, heartfelt,

See it if You are passionate about a cause, you enjoy political diatribes and one-person shows, you are still questioning your humanitarian stance

Don't see it if You demand a plot with a well-defined problem and solution.You like elaborate productions and prefer musicals over drama

"Corrie’s words, drawn from her journals and emails and edited by Katherine Viner and Alan Rickman, are divine. Erin Cronican is wonderful as Rachel; funny, self effacing, observant, meticulous, flawed and confused. A production of Rachel’s story, in her own words, is so strong and solid that it does not need the theatrical staging of this production. Trust that an actor on stage with the presence and talent of Ms. Cronican is sufficient."
