What the Constitution Means to Me
A Southeastern Premiere
By Heidi Schreck
Directed by Margaret M. Ledford
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.
After each Friday performance, audiences are invited to a 30-minute post-show discussion on themes explored in the play. Host Deborah Magdalena joins two guests each night for lively conversation connecting the community to the show.
Post-show Talkback Schedule:
Damaris Del Valle, Deputy Chief of Felonies, Board Certified Criminal Trial Attorney, Law Offices of the Public Defender, Carlos J. Martinez
Carmen Maria Vizcaino, Esq., Wahid Vizcaino Geller, L.L.P., Florida Association of Criminal Defense Attorneys-Miami

The New York Times
“Not just the best play to open on Broadway so far this season, but also the most important.”
The Washington Post
“Endearingly funny and deeply affecting ... It would be hard to identify a work for the theater with its finger more on the pulse of America right now.”
