Flatgirl Opens in New York
Errr, that is, the internationally-acclaimed play, My Name is Rachel Corrie
. Kesher Talk was there
, handing out some very poignant flyers. The thing that I find interesting is that they were paying attention to what worked with the audience for the play:A few people (who appeared to be sympathetic to Rachel, perhaps biased against Israel) asked "what side are you on"...to which we replied " the side of peace...and there is no question that Rachel wanted peace...". This response was well recieved and these skeptics took our literature.
Several people said " so you don't think people should see this play"....we replied "to the contrary" it's important to hear all points of view this is a complicated story, we just encourage you to have more facts in front of you"....Ticket-holders responded well to this response, too, taking the info.
