BWW Review: The Lawful Ways of Love in Oliveira's THE CONSTITUTION Photo BWW Review: The Lawful Ways of Love in Oliveira's THE CONSTITUTION
by Kristen Morale - Sep 7, 2017

Picture four people in a room, possessing just short of enough free will to be there but knowing that they can walk out if the mood strikes them. Four actors who base their lives on the truth of the untruth, forced to write a constitution applicable to all the actual people they have played - people who rely on their logic and experience to shape a universally "good" future. Four souls trapped in a room, compelled enough by the attraction of love to write a new Constitution based upon it. Six days are all they have to write something with no boundaries, no rules and no expectations. Shouldn't be too difficult, right?
