Producers hope "My Name is Rachel Corrie" will force Israelis to confront Israel's activities in Palestinian territories.
The 23-year-old Corrie was killed in 2003 as a pro-Palestinian group protested against a bulldozer demolishing homes.
The play was first staged in London in 2005. It opened Sunday to a full house at a small Jerusalem theater.
Corrie's parents, Cindy and Craig in Olympia, welcomed the Hebrew version of the play and said it brings her story full circle.
