Heidi Schreck's WHAT THE CONSTITUTION MEANS TO ME Extends Through October 28

New York Theatre Workshop (NYTW) announced today an extension for What the Constitution Means to Me by two-time Obie Award winner Heidi Schreck (Grand Concourse, "I Love Dick") and directed by Obie Award winner Oliver Butler (The Amateurs, The Light Years). Originally scheduled to play its final performance on October 21, 2018, What the Constitution Means to Me will now play additional performances through Sunday, October 28, 2018. What the Constitution Means to Me began previews on Wednesday, September 12, 2018, and will open Sunday, September 30 at New York Theatre Workshop (79 E. 4th Street New York, NY 10003).

The cast for What the Constitution Means to Me includes Schreck, Mike Iveson, and New York City high school students Rosdely Ciprian and Thursday Williams.

What the Constitution Means to Me features scenic design by Rachel Hauck (Hadestown), costume design by Michael Krass (Hadestown), lighting design by Jen Schriever (Eclipsed), and sound design by Sinan Zafar (Hamlet). Dramaturgy is by Sarah Lunnie (Literary Director, Playwrights Horizons). Terri K. Kohler (The House that Will Not Stand) will serve as stage manager.

Fifteen-year-old Heidi Schreck put herself through college by giving speeches about the U.S. Constitution. Now, the Obie Award winner resurrects her teenage self in order to trace the document's profound impact on women's bodies-starting with her great-great-grandmother, a mail-order bride who died under mysterious circumstances. This witty and searingly personal exploration breathes new life into our founding document and imagines how it will shape the next generation of American women. Obie Award winner Oliver Butler directs. What the Constitution Means to Me was commissioned by True Love Productions. This production originated as part of Summerworks 2017, produced by Clubbed Thumb in partnership with True Love Productions.

Single tickets for What the Constitution Means to Me start at $35 and vary by performance date and time.

In order to provide access to those in their surrounding community and those with income limitations, NYTW launched CHEAPTIX, an affordable ticket program. A $25 day-of CHEAPTIX RUSH will be available for young people, seniors, artists and Lower East Side residents. Rush tickets are subject to availability and are sold cash-only, limit two per person.

To enable more young people to see What the Constitution Means to Me, NYTW has expanded the CHEAPTIX RUSH program to allow young people under 25 to purchase in advance.
