The Constitution by Mickaël de Oliveira tells the story of four actors, who are invited by the government to write a new Constitution during troublesome political times. They are sequestered from society and given just six days to complete their mission. The highly acclaimed Portuguese playwright blends classical philosophy and contemporary cynicism, placing importance on social and political analysis, and also experimenting with form. Each performance can be re-explored and challenges its predecessors to discover new expressions of the play's themes. The play was translated exclusively for the Saudade Theatre by dramaturge Maria Inês Marques.
