A world premiere play presented both in-person and virtually, "I With Things New Born" celebrates those who labor and defiantly hope.

The Birth Play Project's I With Things New Born will be presented October 30th-November 8th live at the Off-Leash Art Box in Minneapolis and streaming in your home at your convenience wherever you are in the world.

"Juliet is ousted from Shakespeare's Measure for Measure after she is imprisoned for conceiving a child out of wedlock, and Sister Francisca, the young nun & midwife tasked with catching Juliet's baby, has never attended a birth alone before. But with the city outside in chaos, the two strangers must find enough common ground to perform an act of near-unbearable intimacy. Adapted for an altered world from a longer play of the same name, I With Things New Born is an ode to the timeless, quiet courage of those who ensure that life goes on - a story of labor and defiant hope."

I With Things New Born is written and directed by Madeline Wall, who also performs in the play alongside leading actor Renee Schwarz.
