The Phoenix Theatre Company presents the boundary-breaking “What the Constitution Means to Me,” which entertains, educates, and inspires with its timely subject.

This play is an invitation to reflect on the ongoing relevance of the United States Constitution in everyday life. Audiences will be moved with this hilarious and heartbreaking show, which is ultimately a lesson in empathy, history, and the possibility of change.

The show will run from April 10 to June 16 at the Phoenix Theatre Company’s Hardes Theatre, according to a press release.

Written by Heidi Schreck, “What the Constitution Means to Me” weaves together humor, historical insight, and personal narrative to explore how the Constitution has shaped the rights and liberties of American women across generations.

Ms. Schreck says she draws from her own experiences as a teenager traveling the country to participate in Constitutional debates, reflecting on the document’s influence on her, her family, and the broader implications for women’s rights in America.

“In the play, Ms. Schreck refers to the Constitution as a ‘living document’ and something exceptional about this piece is that it is also ‘living.’ It portrays real stories and engages the audience as another character – inspiring conversation and self-reflection. Every performance of this show will be unique, and the final moments of the play will be different every night,” said Michelle Chin, Festival of New Works + Summer Camp Director, Resident Dramaturg, and director of this production.

“Its title may suggest something academic or political, but at its heart this play is about human experience.”

In an era where the conversation around individual rights and freedoms is more vibrant and vital than ever, “What the Constitution Means to Me,” offers a timely exploration of the impact of the United States most important document.

Of Note: The cast for “What the Constitution Means to Me” at the Phoenix Theatre Company includes Kate Haas and Rob Watson. The understudy cast includes Amie Bjorklund and Johnny Kalita.
