Bread and Puppet Returns to DC

WHEN: SATURDAY, APRIL 4TH at 7pm and again at 9pm! (Two showings in one night!)
WHERE: At St. Stephen's Church, Auditorium: 1525 Newton St NW

Suggested Donation: $5-$10 Sliding Scale (No one turned away)

THE BREAD & PUPPET THEATER returns to DC as The Lubberland National Dance Company in “27 Dirt-Cheap Dances,” a topical play for these trying times of economic crisis. Bread & Puppet’s itinerant Lubberlanders will enact problem-solving dances for our problems, collateral damage dances for victims, victory dances for victories, wedding dances for hostile populations and their rulers, funeral dances in response to the most recent wars of Lubberland, and total peace and harmony dances with no meaning whatsoever. Karl Marx makes a cameo appearance to duke it out with Uncle Money, and yeah, there will be giant puppets, the notorious Cheap Art Store, and maybe even some sourdough bread after the show.

We need volunteers to be in the show!! Both performers and musicians!

The rehearsal for the show will be on Saturday afternoon, April 4th from 2:30-6:30pm in St. Stephen's auditorium, followed by the two performances. (Anyone can participate! No dance, theater or music experience necessary!)

Volunteers should RSVP to

See you soon!
