CHANGING THE CANON OF THEATER - ONE STORY AT A TIME

Exposed Brick Theatre is a Twin Cities based theater company.  Founded in 2004 by Aamera Siddiqui and Suzy Messerole, we are dedicated to telling untold stories, centering omitted narratives & creating art at the intersection of identities.  

This year our goal is to raise $4,000 to support brand new work for the stage, foster early-career playwrights, fuel amazing partnerships, and engage students through meaningful workshops and residencies in schools.



Connection, collaboration, representation, amplifying marginalized voices, telling forgotten or ignored stories - these are all things Exposed Brick Theatre prioritizes and that is exactly why we need to continue supporting their work.  - Julia Isabel Diaz, Marlen in Code You


We intentionally work with artists from specific communities and supports them in writing plays that reflect their communities back to themselves.  In doing so, we are changing the canon of plays which has been dominated by white men who have long passed away and expanding it to include more voices from communities whose representation in theater has been limited. We want our programming to create reflections where audiences of all ages  see themselves represented and know that theater is  a place for them.  We are also making space to explore new and culturally relevant ways to make theater that are relevant to each artist, community and story.


Exposed Brick Theatre tells unique stories that are rarely heard, and when working with them I always feel welcomed and supported. They create a lovely and collaborative environment, and they are the kind of theater company that I am proud to have as a part of our theater community.    - Aaron Pruesse, Founder of The Fake Fighting Company


Donate TODAY and together we can change the canon of theater - one story at a time!
