What the Constitution Means to Me


Finalist 2019 Pulitzer Prize Drama
Winner 2019 Obie Awards Best New American Play
Winner 2019 New York Critics' Circle Best American Play
Written by Heidi Schreck
Performed in conjunction with local High School debate teams

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 new 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.

“Uproariously funny, wrenchingly moving, critically challenging and politically inspiring.” – The New York Review of Books

“Heidi Schreck’s fiercely urgent and soul-restoring What the Constitution Means to Me keeps uncannily in step with the times.” – The Observer
