Playwright Heidi Schreck’s boundary-breaking play breathes new life into our Constitution and imagines how it will shape the next generation of Americans. Heidi earned her college tuition by winning Constitutional debate competitions across the United States.

In this play, she resurrects her 15-year-old teenage self in order to trace the profound relationship between four generations of women and the founding document that shaped their lives.
