Playwright Heidi Schreck on Putting the Constitution in Context
Tony-nominated playwright and actress Heidi Schreck discusses what inspired her hit-broadway show, "What the Constitution Means to Me," with CBS News national correspondent Jerica Duncan. Now available to stream on Amazon Prime VIdeo, Schreck details how the lives of three generations of women in her family was shaped by the Constitution. She tells Duncan the impact the show has had on her and audience members. Schreck shares notes the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg gave her after seeing the show and asking for the script. She says part of the proceeds from the film will be donated to the Broadway Cares COVID Relief Fund and to the NAACP Legal Defense Fund’s Voting Rights 2020 initiative.
