ABOUT THE SHOW

A wildfire! Something every citizen must-see.

Helen Shaw, Time Out

Direct from Broadway, 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.


Schreck's timely and galvanizing play, directed by Oliver Butler, became a sensation off-Broadway before transferring to Broadway where it received two Tony Award nominations among countless other accolades. The New York Times hailed What the Constitution Means to Me as "not just the best play to open on Broadway so far this season, but also the most important."


  

McCarter and the Princeton Public Library, in advance of McCarter’s direct-from-Broadway presentation of Heidi Schreck’s What the Constitution Means to Me, invite all interested readers to join in a “pop-up book club” experience.
