Mark Taper Forum

What the Constitution Means to Me

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.

A singularly charming, politically urgent and cathartically necessary play.

One of the most exciting things I've ever seen....I left feeling more hope about the survival of democracy.
