Abstract

This dissertation explores the ability of liberating actors in order to find the voice for a play, particularly My Name is Rachel Corrie, a piece of documentary theatre which highlights human rights abuses within the Israel/Palestine dispute; primarily through the use of theatre directing techniques that I have experienced first-hand through professional placements and research. The title My Name is Rachel Corrie already advocates Rachel’s personal journey. I will also examine the plays efficacy in dealing with human rights abuses taking place in the Middle East.
