The production will be presented as part of Clubbed Thumb's Summerworks series.
Heidi Schreck is set to join the cast of her play What the Constitution Means to Me during Clubbed Thumb's upcoming season of Summerworks, the company's annual series of new plays.
A coproduction with True Love Productions, What the Constitution Means to Me will be directed by Oliver Butler. The cast will also include Danny Wolohan (An Octoroon) and 11-year-old Rosdely Ciprian. The new play was commissioned by True Love Productions. Performances will run June 2-July 1 at The Wild Project.
In What the Constitution Means to Me, it's 1989 and "Heidi is trying to earn enough money to go to college by giving speeches about the Constitution in American Legion Halls across the country. When she loses the first round to Becky Dobbins because her speech isn't personal enough, she decides to go deep. Starting with her great-great-grandmother, a mail-order bride who died of 'melancholia,' she traces the effects of a single sentence of the Ninth Amendment on generations of women in her family — and on the violent men they married."
The production will feature set design by Rachel Hauck, costume design by Michael Krass, lighting design by Jennifer Schriever, sound design by Sinan Zafar, original compositions by Heather Robb, and choreography by David Neumann.
