Join us for a screening of documentary footage celebrating the 50th  anniversary of one of the oldest, nonprofit, self-supporting theatrical companies in the country, Bread and Puppet Theater.


Forthright populist sentiments merge with deceptively simplistic, larger than life puppets handmade from everyday materials; cardboard, cloth, and paint comes alive to not only entertain, but to tell archetypal stories of humanity's most basic challenges. The theater's repertoire has included such performances as Thunderstorm of the Youngest Child, Uprising of the Beast, Birdcatcher in Hell, and Shatterer of Worlds Chapel With Naturalization Services for Applicants Requesting Citizenship in the ShatteredWorld.Come out for an evening of storytelling and wonder, shop beautiful B+P prints - all proceeds of poster sales benefit the B+P Theater - and help keep Bread + Puppet alive for another fifty years!
