Bread & Puppet


Visited the bread and puppet museum will be posting some of the images soon. 

The Bread and Puppet Theater (often known simply as Bread & Puppet) is a politically radical puppet theater, active since the 1960s. Founded in 1962–1963 in New York City. It was active during the Vietnam War in anti-war protests, primarily in New York. 

It is often remembered as a central part of the political spectacle of the time, as its enormous puppets (often ten to fifteen feet tall) were a fixture of many demonstrations. In 1970 the Theater moved to Vermont, first to Goddard College in Plainfield, and then to a farm in Glover where it still resides.
