What the Constitution Means to Me

What the Constitution Means to Me

About This Show

How do you chart freedom? How can you package liberty? Who’s included and who’s deliberately discarded? How can you create your own future when it’s never certain to begin with? Playwright Heidi Schreck’s Pulitzer Prize-nominated play dives into who the US Constitution is really for, using her past teenage self, winning college money by debating the Constitution in American Legion halls across the country. Hilarious, heartbreaking and insightful, What the Constitution Means to Me shows the fight for freedom and equality is never done but passed on from generation to generation. But perhaps Schreck’s most incendiary question is the most obvious: Should we abolish the Constitution and start over?
