Resistance of the heart against business as usual. We are the Bread & Puppet Theater because we offer good old sourdough rye bread together with a great variety of puppet shows, some good, some not so good, but all for the good and against the bad. The art of puppetry helps women, men and children alike to overcome the established order and the obsessive submission to its politics and consequent brutalities. -–Peter Schumann
Today, Bread and Puppet continues to be one of the oldest, nonprofit, self-supporting theatrical companies in the country.
