Madeline Wall

Greetings! Thanks for being here.
I am a writer and theatre creature based in Minneapolis, MN. I write and direct plays, and I also act and choreograph intimacy for the stage. My artistic research is centered on "womb stories," I produce theatre via The Birth Play Project (@birthplayproject on Instagram), and make my artistic home at the Elision Playhouse just outside of Minneapolis. 

This article, published in the May 2022 issue of the Minnesota Women's Press, is a great "I Am" Song for the work that I do. It's titled Placing Birth in Public Memory.

I also love staging queerness-as-transcendence, love Shakespeare, and have recently become comfortable calling myself a songwriter / lyricist. 

Words I appreciate that have been used to describe my work: 
Precision. Muscular. Enchanting, wickedly smart. Heart-first, siren-voiced, joy-giver, avenging angel. A force, difficult to define and quantify. The magic was there. 

RECENT NEWS: Mary's Wondrous Body returned reimagined to the Elision Playhouse September 8th-17th, 2023. Read the review from MPR News here and follow The Birth Play Project @birthplayproject on Instagram. 

My next project is Theatre Elision's regional premiere of Grace McLean's In The Green, opening February 2024 at the Elision Playhouse.
