Edges
by Ashawnti Sakina Ford
Directed by Joy Dolo

Edges is a new play about the hair stories of African American women, past and present. The staged reading culminates a workshop week of play development.

Exposed Brick Theatre is dedicated to telling the untold stories through theatre and performance art. We create opportunities for audiences and artists to grow beyond their own personal experience and view their world from new and multiple perspectives. By creating original work that dissects unexamined subject matter, we give voice to silenced issues and populations with the overall intention of fostering an authentic understanding across divides.

Exposed Brick Theatre is a fiscal year 2018 recipient of a Cultural Community Partnership grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board. This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation by the Minnesota State Legislature; and by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.
