WHAT THE CONSTITUTION MEANS TO ME
Playwright: Heidi Schreck
Director: caryn desai
Rehearsals Start: 4/9/24
Previews: 5/1/24 & 5/2/24
SYNOPSIS: Playwright Heidi Schreck breathes new life into our Constitution and imagines how it will shape the next generation of Americans. In this hilarious, hopeful and achingly human play, she resurrects her teenage self in order to trace the profound relationship between 4 generations of women and the founding document that shaped their lives.
HEIDI – Female, 40s. We meet her as an adult but she then captures the teenage girl on the debate stage (which is how she earned her way through college). Comfortable talking to the audience in a spontaneous and genuine manner, including occasional ad-libs
LEGIONNAIRE/MIKE – Male, 40s. Conducts the debate, sets the rules, and changes from Legionnaire to the actor himself (on which the part is based)
GIRL/STUDENT/DEBATER – Female, 18 + to play a real teenager. Shares the debate stage with Heidi, capable young debater
Playwright: Paul Slade Smith
Director: Brian Shnipper
Rehearsals Start: 5/21/24
Previews: 6/12/24 & 6/13/24
PAIGE CALDWELL – Female, late 20s to 40s. A professional pollster. A smart, confident woman with a professional’s view of politics: she sees life as a series of contests to be won.
DAVE RILEY – Male, 30s/40s. Chief of Staff to the Governor. Smart, but— despite years of experience in government — endearingly earnest and naive on the subject of politics.
LOUISE PEAKES – Female, 30s to 50s. A temp employee hired as the Governor's executive assistant. Likable, impressively confident, and entirely inept. She has the air of a politician about her. The friendliness of her smile, and the confident way she looks everyone in the eye, makes them think, "I'd vote for her.”
NED NEWLEY – Male, 50s/60s. The new Governor. A man of impressive ability, but a complete lack of confidence. A man waiting permission to enter a room in which he is already standing.
ARTHUR VANCE – Male, 50s/60s. One of the most experienced and successful political consultants in the country. Smartly dressed. His overbearing personality, and confidence in his own opinions over the opinions of others, should make him dislikable, but his ego is more than tempered by the joy — even glee — he brings into the room. He’s a showman, but his excitement is 100% genuine, and it's contagious.
RACHEL PARSONS – Female, 30s./40s. A TV reporter. She has the looks to be an on-air correspondent though, if television had never been invented, she still would have been a journalist. Straight-forward and honest, and inquisitive by nature. She's seen enough of life - and politics - to be cynical, but she's more apt to make a wry joke.
A. C. PETERSEN – Male, 30s to 50s. A TV camera man. A working man, and, for most people, the guy you didn't notice was there. Sharp sense of humor. He has a low tolerance for stupidity or arrogance, and would rather not interact with anyone. His near-silence doesn't make him seem unfriendly, just a bit of a mystery.
