What The Constitution Means To Me

September 24 - October 13, 2024

It presents the US constitution as profoundly flawed, but capable of improvement. The promise of a more just, more equal union has not been foreclosed. But a more perfect solo show? Broadway won't see one for years.

New Production

Heidi Schreck's critically acclaimed drama opens George Street Playhouse's 50th season with this all-new production. Wowing critics and audiences alike for its discussion on the USA's most important document, What The Constitution Means To Me was nominated for two Tony Awards, two Drama Desk awards, and two Drama League Awards in 2019.

Weaving together political and personal histories to show how women's rights have shifted throughout four generations What The Constitution Means To Me transferred to Broadway in March of 2019, where it was named the play of the year by both the New Yorker and the New York Magazine. 

What is the story?

Having paid for college tuition by winning constitutional debates as a teenager, Obie-winner Heidi Schreck knows a thing or two about America's founding document. Here she brings her teenage self to the stage, alongside other women from her family tree, creating a lively and funny conversation about rights granted and rights withheld.
