About the troupe:

The Bread and Puppet Theater was founded in 1963 by Peter Schumann on  
New York City’s Lower East Side. Besides rod-puppet and hand puppet  
shows for children, the concerns of the first productions were rents,  
rats, police, and other problems of the neighborhood. More complex  
theater pieces followed, in which sculpture, music, dance and language  
were equal partners. The puppets grew bigger and bigger.

In 1974 Bread and Puppet moved to a farm in Glover in the Northeast  
Kingdom of Vermont. The 140-year old hay barn was transformed into a  
museum for veteran puppets. Today, Bread and Puppet continues to be  
one of the oldest, nonprofit, self-supporting theatrical companies in  
the country.
