What the Constitution Means to Me

September 30 - October 23, 2022

Bagley Wright Theater

Tony Award Nominee, Pulitzer Prize Finalist

Playwright Heidi Schreck's boundary-breaking play breathes new life into our Constitution and imagines how it will shape the next generation of Americans. In this hilarious, hopeful, and achingly human new play, actor Cassie Beck resurrects Schreck's teenage self in order to trace the profound relationship between four generations of women and the founding document that shaped their lives.
