Heidi Schreck's timely and galvanizing play, directed by Oliver Butler, became a sensation off-Broadway last fall before transferring to Broadway this spring and receiving two Tony Award® nominations, two Drama Desk Award nominations, two Drama League Award nominations, an Outer Critic Circle Award nomination, and a Lucille Lortel Award nomination. It was recently named a Pulitzer Prize Finalist for Drama, received the New York Drama Critics' Circle Award for Best American Play, and the Obie Award for Best New American Play.
Fifteen-year-old Heidi Schreck earned her college tuition by winning Constitutional debate competitions across the United States. Now, the three-time 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 features Schreck alongside original Broadway cast members Mike Iveson and New York City high school student Rosdely Ciprian, and is directed by Obie Award winner Oliver Butler.
The production features scenic design by Rachel Hauck (Hadestown), costume design by Michael Krass (Hadestown), lighting design by Jen Schriever (Eclipsed), and sound design by Sinan Refik Zafar (Hamlet).
