New York Theatre Workshop celebrated the official opening of Heidi Schreck's play What the Constitution Means to Me September 30. Written and performed by the two-time Obie Award-winning playwright and actor (and inspired by her upbringing), the play traces the impacts of the United States' founding document on generations of women as well as in her own family.
What the Constitution Means to Me is directed by Oliver Butler, who helmed the acclaimed world premiere last summer at Clubbed Thumb’s Summerworks Festival. Schreck is joined onstage by Mike Iveson and New York City high school students Rosdely Ciprian and Thursday Williams.
