She’s got some amendments.
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 embodies her teenage self in order to trace the founding document’s profound impact on not just her own life, but the past four generations of women in her family, starting with the first to set foot in America: a mail-order bride. A Pulitzer Prize finalist and Tony Award nominee, this boundary-breaking play by Heidi Schreck breathes new life into our Constitution and imagines how it will shape the next generation of Americans.

Sweet Charity captures all the energy, humor, and heartbreak of Life in the Big City for an unfortunate but irrepressible optimist.

“A show that puts women in the forefront as we watch Charity navigate life in New York, looking for love. It is a look back at the ’60s with great numbers like “Big Spender” and “The Frug” a big number that happens in a dance club.” - Diane Lala, director
