Exposed Brick Theatre is excited to present the World Premier of Muyehpen by Ehkhudah Zar

The story of Muyehpen has been passed down for generations by the Karen people of Burma. Known to be the most beautiful Karen woman in her time, and possessing supernatural powers, Muyehpen was kidnapped by the king of Siam and became a sacrifice. This is her narrative of resistance and resilience, which lives on today. The world premiere production will be the first-ever theater production by a Karen artist in Minnesota, and will share the story of Muyehpen with a new generation.
