James Hammerstein Productions
Hope. Courage. Curiosity. Fear. Disappointment. Disbelief. Rage.
Love. Only a few of the many emotions coloring the last months of
an unusual American girl’s life. In 2003, the 23-year-old Rachel
Corrie was lead to Palestine by her profound sense of justice and
empathy. She was an innate activist, human rights fighter and an
outspoken peace seeker. Some say she was fearless, and humane.
Others claim that she was simply reckless and a trouble-maker. Yet
her story is not really about tunnels, politics and weaponsmuggling. She wanted to use her voice to raise questions and
prevent walls from being built, while she eventually discovered the
real world and herself. By her writings she opens a window to the
world of everyday people forced to live in warzones, constantly in
the fragile territory between life and death. And who without their
notion become heroes by caring, sharing and understanding. On
both sides of the border. Rachel saw the beauty of simplicity in
times when we all tend to forget about it.

Germany and Method Acting at the Lee Strasberg Theatre

stage and in front of the camera for multiple years and has
embodied characters like Charlotte in Baby Talk by
Lund/Zaufke, Nellie in Jekyll & Hyde by Wildhorn/Bricusse
or Mrs Thistletwat in Avenue Q by Lopez/Marx and Helena
in A Midsummer Night’s Dream by Shakespeare. Stephanie
feels a strong connection to the character of Rachel Corrie
and is therefore delighted to be able to perform Corrie’s
work on stage.
DORA ENDRE (Director) is a Hungarian screenwriter,

Statue Who Decided to Go for a Walk), the London
Independent Film Awards (short movie: Blind Passers), the
New York Film and Television Festival (Chimera). Her other
works included short movies, and music videos. She is
currently in pre-production for her newest project.
Last fall she directed her first play in New York, a Marshall
Hall Production’s The Motherf**ker with the Hat by Stephen
Adly Guirgis. Dora is excited to direct “My Name Is Rachel
Corrie” since she believes that Rachel Corrie’s passion and
sheer humanity must be remembered as a great example especially in a contemporary time reference.
