What is a living, breathing document? Well, the U.S. Constitution of course.
What the Constitution Means to Me by Heidi Schreck, running December 1 – 18, 2022 at the Arsht Center, is a boundary-breaking play that breathes new life into our Constitution and imagines how it will shape the next generation of Americans. Fifteen-year-old Heidi earned her college tuition by winning constitutional debate competitions across the United States. In this hilarious, hopeful and achingly human new play, she resurrects her teenage self in order to trace the profound relationship between four generations of women and the founding document that shaped their lives.

The Constitution is one of the most important pieces of American history. It has been around since 1787, and it still influences our laws today. One thing that people don’t realize about this document is how much it impacts young people’s lives every day. Not only does it set up how people are governed in America, but it also lets everyone know what their citizenship rights are and how they can take action if they feel as ?there is something wrong with the way they are being treated. When young people learn about this document, they can feel more confident in themselves and how to stand up for what they believe in.
