Heidi Schreck’s Tony Award-nominated play returns to Chicago after its run was cut short in 2020, this time with Cassie Beck taking on the lead role. Part history lesson and part memoir, the play takes audiences back to Schreck's teenage years, when she traveled the country participating in debate competitions about the U.S. Constitution. Through stories about four generations of women in her family (including some gut-wrenching personal narratives) Schreck explores the shortcomings of the nation's founding document, specifically critiquing its treatment of women and immigrants. It's a timely look at the ways in which words set forth in a document can shape the lives and experiences of Americans for generations to come.
