I have been blessed to be part of an amazing ensemble and to tell this impactful story! The play was inspired by the life and death of American activist Rachel Corrie, who in 2003 was fatally injured by a bulldozer operating on behalf of the Israeli government.
Here are some of the reviews:
McKenzie’s assured direction of a fine cast, the piece finds its most intimate perspective on Sarah’s death in the emotional aftermath for her family.” —Philip Brandes
LA Weekly’s Pick of the Week callsSarah’s War a production of “well-calibrated pacing” and “solid performances.”
Backstage West’s Critic’s Pick. “Dillman’s play is provocative and full of affecting scenes. The title character (Abica Dubay) is depicted as an idealist so naively passionate that her death seems almost inevitable. Sarah’s mother, Ann (Terry Davis), is tormented by conflicts and a desperate need to know what really happened. And Danny, the driver of the fatal bulldozer (Will Rothhaar), becomes a tormented figure with deep-seated doubts about the justice of his mission.” —Neal Weaver
As the play was scheduled to end on March 18th and due to popular demand a 4 week extension has been decided. I’m grateful I get to share this intimate stage experience with the amazing audience. For ticket information please visit Freedom Theater West.
