A play about a pro-Palestinian American activist opened Sunday in New York City. “My Name is Rachel Corrie” is a one-woman drama based on the young woman’s journal entries and e-mails. Corrie was a 23-year-old activist with the International Solidarity Movement when she was run over and killed by an Israeli bulldozer as she tried to prevent it from searching for Palestinian arms-smuggling tunnels in the Gaza Strip in 2003.
