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.

After being nominated for the Best Play award at the 2019 Tony's, Heidi Schreck's critically acclaimed drama hits the road on its first national tour! 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, marking it as one of the most scintillating productions of the year!
Weaving together political and personal histories to show how women's rights have shifted over the course of four generations What The Constitution Means To Me transferred to Broadway in the March of 2019, where it was named the play of the year by both the New Yorker and the New York Magazine. This brand new tour will feature a brand new set of cast members with Oliver Butler returning to direct.
Having paid for college tuition through 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.
Performance date: 31 January 2022
