Biography

My name is Meggie Greivell, I am a freelance director, playwright, teaching artist and producer.  I seek to create theatre that gives a voice to the unheard, theatre that audiences not only can connect to but walk away from changed.  I am drawn to poetic, classical, and expressionistic plays, that stray slightly away from realism but still capture the human spirit. I strive to direct work that empowers the unheard and represents them well.  I've worked with various theatre companies in the Twin Cities as a director, assistant director, and teaching artist.  Some companies include, Theatre Unbound, Northern Starz Children's Theatre, Gadfly Theatre Productions,  Workhaus Collective, Pillsbury House Theatre, Theatre Pro Rata and The Phoenix Theater, Arst Nest.   My favorite plays to direct are ones that have a direct impact on the community, that help to create change.
