Artist Series: What the Constitution Means to Me
Go behind-the-curtain before the performance! Join us for an exclusive, up-close conversation with Mark Taper Forum artists and artisans—from playwrights and directors to designers and production crew members—to explore the inspiration and craft that gets the art onstage.
About the Artist Series
Before the second Saturday matinee performance of every Taper show, our Artist Series includes a talk and question-and-answer session that create a complete theatrical experience for curious and passionate audiences.
Direct from Broadway, where it received the 2019 Tony® nomination for Best Play, What the Constitution Means to Me arrives at the Taper for a limited engagement. This boundary-breaking play breathes new life into our Constitution and imagines how it will shape the next generation of American women. Fifteen-year-old Heidi Schreck earned her college tuition by winning Constitutional debate competitions across the United States. Now, the Obie Award winner recalls her teenage self in order to trace the profound relationship between four generations of women in her own family and the founding document that dictated their rights and citizenship. This hilarious, hopeful, and “achingly human” (Exeunt Magazine) exploration is directed by Obie Award winner Oliver Butler.
