“What the Constitution Means to Me” will be part of The George Street Playhouse’s 2024-25 season.

An election season production of “What the Constitution Means to Me” will be part of the 2024-25 season of The George Street Playhouse, which presents its plays at The New Brunswick Performing Arts Center.

Heidi Schreck’s 2017 play ran on Broadway in 2019, and was nominated for a Tony in the Best Play category. It also was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. The Pulitzer website describes it as “A charming and incisive analysis of gender and racial biases inherent to the U.S. Constitution that examines how this living document could evolve to fit modern America.”

Other plays in the season include “Gene & Gilda,” about the relationship between comedian and actor Gilda Radner and her husband, actor Gene Wilder; Robert Montano’s “Small,” an autobiographical one-person play about Montano’s life, including the work he has done as a professional jockey and a professional dancer; “King James,” about the friendship between two hardcore basketball fans in Cleveland; and Ian Shaw and Joseph Nixon’s “The Shark Is Broken,” about actors Robert Shaw (Ian Shaw’s father), Roy Scheider and Richard Dreyfuss during the making of the hit movie “Jaws.”
