Her 2017 piece, What the Constitution Means to Me, directed by Oliver Butler, is a personal reflection about the United States Constitution. She resurrects her younger self and engages in debates about the Constitution, noting that the word “woman” is not mentioned, and traces the profound relationship between four generations of women in her own family and the founding document that dictated their rights and citizenship. This play is described by the New York Times as “The Best and Most Important New Play of the Season”.
