Mary's Wondrous Body

By Madeline Wall

Mary's Wondrous Body is a dark comedy with original music about the life and lies of Mary Toft, who captivated the medical community in 1726 by purportedly giving birth to rabbits. In the play, Mary steps into the present to laugh, sing, grieve, and (maybe) tell the truth.

At a time when women's voices struggle to be heard, Carmel Dean imagined what famous women in history would say if given a microphone. Through the voices of Eve, Mary Magdalene, Cleopatra, Harriet Tubman and many more, we hear songs of courage, strength, rage, and resilience. The songs range from rock and jazz to country, and are at times painful, heart-warming, and hilarious.  Our group of Twin Cities singers portray nineteen women -- some you will recognize, others you learn about for the first time.

Parking information:  Elision Playhouse has a free adjacent parking lot.  If that is full, there is also street parking along Brunswick Avenue (east of the building) behind the back entrance of our parking lot. PLEASE DO NOT PARK IN ANY OF THE RED SHADED AREAS. The small lot as you enter is reserved for Keng's Restaurant.  There is NO parking between 42nd Avenue and our back driveway, but it is fine to park beyond that. The Brunswick United Methodist Church has also graciously offered the use of their parking lot behind the church for overflow parking. Other nearby street parking is also available. Thanks to Terrence Joyce for the great map below!
