Movie Discussion Group: What the Constitution Means to Me (4:00)
Monday, October 26 from 4:00 - 5:00 p.m.
Heidi Schreck’s What the Constitution Means to Me, filmed in the final week of its Broadway run last year, will land on Amazon Prime Video October 16.
In the play, Schreck resurrects her teenage self—when she put herself through college by giving speeches about the U.S. Constitution—to trace the effects of the founding document on generations of women, including many in her own family.
The play earned Schreck two Tony Award nominations—Best Play (as playwright) and Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role in a Play. She was also named a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
The discussion will take place via Zoom on Monday, October 26 from 4:00 - 5:00 p.m. Members are encouraged to watch What the Constitution Means to Me on Amazon prior to joining the conversation. It will be available to stream on demand on Amazon Prime after October 16 (when we will post the link). You may read a NYT’s review about the play here.
