In October 2018, we were delighted to have been commissioned by The British Council, Lebanon and EUNIC to open the inaugural Lebanon European Theatre Festival in Beirut, in association with Verve Collective to present a new production of MY NAME IS RACHEL CORRIE. The festival was hosted at Al Madina Theatre and transferred to Zoukak studio.

'LATHAM'S ACTING IS EMOTIONALLY DRIVEN AND CONVINCING, PRESENTING A DOWN-TO-EARTH AND HUMAN CORRIE...
THE PLAY PAYS TRIBUTE TO THE PERSON SHE WAS AND WHAT SHE HOPED TO ACHIEVE... IT TOUCHED AUDIENCE MEMBERS WITHOUT USING THE SHORTCUT OF OVERWHELMING SADNESS'
We had fun taking the set from 25m stage of Al Madina and rebuilding it in the 6 m Zoukak theatre overnight. Kudos to our great tech team!
