What The Constitution Means To Me
175 East Chestnut Street Chicago
The national tour of WHAT THE CONSTITUTION MEANS TO ME, Heidi Schreck's Tony Award nominated Pulitzer Prize finalist play, directed by Oliver Butler, will return to Chicago this fall starring Cassie Beck (The Humans, "Shameless") in the leading role. 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 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. Schreck's timely and galvanizing play, became a sensation off-Broadway at New York Theatre Workshop in 2018 before transferring to Broadway in 2019 and receiving two Tony Award nominations among countless other accolades. The New York Times hailed it as "not just the best play on Broadway, but also the most important."
