Holiday stories from the international best-selling author of “All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten” have been crafted into an engaging evening of storytelling and song. This charming show takes a funny, heartwarming and often poignant look at the struggle to find the spirit of the holidays amid the avalanche of commercialism, stress and chaos that crashes down every December.

Presented by special arrangement with Dramatic Publishing

Director’s notes: “I wanted to present these stories about how folks view this holiday from many perspectives, from a 3-year-old at daycare to someone looking back at three generations of bell ringing. This play also hits Applause’s sweet spot, ensemble acting and telling a meaningful story. Because this play is first and foremost about storytelling. And isn’t that what we have after all these years of celebrating the holidays with friends and family, stories?” – Gary Davis

Exposed Brick Theatre presents
Vikingos of Muchasnota
by Alex Barreto Hathaway

Exposed Brick Theatre will be workshopping the first act of a new play by Alex Barreto Hathaway, called Vikingos of Muchasnota. The play is a rude comedy about Latin people struggling to get by in the land of Vikings. Who would you become if the world got flipped up-side-down for a day? This lusty romp laughs at our misery, turns fools into Queens, and makes fun of how far we’ve come (or how little, rather) since the Viking age. The play draws from Norse myth, Commedia Dell’arte, and Latinamerican street performances.

Vikingos of Muchasnota is part of Exposed Brick Theatre’s Through Our Eyes play reading series for the development of 8 new plays commissioned in 2020. The virtual showing of Act One of Vikingos of Muchasnota will be livestreamed on Saturday, November 13th at 1:30pm CT. To get the Zoom link just email exposedbricktheatremn@gmail.com and request the link for Vikingos of Muchasnota.

This engagement is supported by the Arts Midwest GIG Fund, a program of Arts Midwest that is funded by the National Endowment for the Arts, with additional contributions from Minnesota State Arts Board.
