Heidi Schreck's Broadway Play – Variety



Call it stealth theater. In the disarming introduction to her play "What the Constitution Means to Me," Heidi Schreck holds forth an American Legion hall in her hometown of Wenatchee, Wash., And "abortion-free zone" where her 15-year-old self is competing in the regional semifinals of a Legion oratory contest. The debate topic, of course, is what the constitution means in the life of a high school girl from Wenatchee, Wash., In 1989.

Her mother, she tells us, managed to preserve (and treasure) the hunk of hair she cut off in high school. But for some reason, she threw out her daughter's prize-winning speech, leaving Schreck a choice but to make a version of the talk she gave thirty years ago, on a civilian stage like the one designed for Broadway by Rachel Hauck. (Highly waxed floor, a showy display of flags and a photo gallery of all-male worthies.)

The engaging writer-performer is all smiles and so we are, anticipating a naive speech from a bright high school girl about her personal appreciation of the US Constitution. But by the end of the show, we've been stirred ̵
