Bread and Puppet in DC



Bread & Puppet Theater returns to St. Stephens Church for 2 evenings this spring with a brand new giant puppet show.

“The Public Access Center for the Obvious Presents: The Situation” is a new work written and directed by founder Peter Schumann. This musical and dark clown-show features cardboard horses, an anti-extinction angel, proletariat broom dancers, a 100 watt lightbulb, a ship of fools, and a swinging brass band: all of whom are urging the Not-Yet-Existing-Upriser-Masses into reality.

This show is appropriate for all ages, but may be more interesting for children ages 10 and up.

TICKET INFO: $10-$15 suggested Donation at the door. No one turned away for lack of funds.
