Starting from the 16th October, Heidi Schreck's Tony-nominated What the Constitution Means to Me will premiere on the streaming service. The original performance was filmed live at the Helen Hayes Theater during the final week of it's Broadway run.
Amazon Studios have also signed a new deal with Schreck to create exlcusive content for Prime Video, with Schreck stating that she will donate part of her proceeds to the Broadway Cares COVID Relief Fund and to the NAACP Legal Defense Fund's Voting Right 2020 initiative.
What the Constitution Means to Me is described as follows: "Fifteen-year-old Heidi Schreck earned her college tuition money by winning Constitutional debate competitions across the United States. In her boundary-breaking new play, the Obie Award winner resurrects her teenage self in order to trace the profound relationship between four generations of women in her own family and the founding document that dictated their rights and citizenship."
Make sure to look out for it October 16th.
