The Contemporary American Theater Festival at Shepherd University opens its 17th season this weekend.  One of this year’s four plays is called “My Name is Rachel Corrie.” It’s based on the writings of a 23-year-old peace activist who was killed in the Gaza Strip four years ago.

Cecelia Mason spoke with Rachel Corrie’s parents about their daughter, the play and the controversy that often surrounds it.
