What The Constitution Means To Me

Injecting hope into democracy

Playwright Heidi Schreck’s boundary-breaking play breathes new life into our Constitution and imagines how it will shape the next generation of Americans. Fifteen-year-old Heidi earned her college tuition by winning Constitutional debate competitions across the United States. In this hilarious, hopeful, and achingly human play, she resurrects her teenage self in order to trace the profound relationship between four generations of women and the founding document that shaped their lives.

  • The play has received accolades such as a nomination for Best Play in the 73rd Tony Awards® and a finalist spot for the 2019 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
  •  The play addresses themes such as women’s rights, immigration, domestic abuse, and the history of the United States.
  •  In 2019, The New York Times called the piece “not just the best play to open on Broadway so far this season, but also the most important.”
