After completing a run at New York Theatre Workshop this past weekend, Heidi Schreck's What the Constitution Means to Me will transfer to the Greenwich House Theater at the end of the month. The production, directed by Oliver Butler, will run there from November 27-December 30.

Fifteen-year-old Heidi Schreck put herself through college by giving speeches about the US Constitution. Now, the Obie Award winner resurrects her teenage self in order to trace the document's profound impact on women's bodies — starting with her great-great-grandmother, a mail-order bride who died under mysterious circumstances. This witty and searingly personal exploration breathes new life into our founding document and imagines how it will shape the next generation of American women.

Schreck leads a cast that also features Mike Iveson and New York City high school students Rosdely Ciprian and Thursday Williams. The creative team includes scenic design by Rachel Hauck, costume design by Michael Krass, lighting design by Jen Schriever, and sound design by Sinan Zafar.
