Color Illustrations; Title: The Dream of the Dirty Woman: A Play in One Act Based on a Dream of Elka Schumann with a Record of the PerformanceAuthor: Bread and Puppet Theater - "The Bread and Puppet Theater" (often known simply as "Bread & Puppet") is a politically radical puppet theater, active since the 1960s, currently based in Glover, Vermont. Its founder and director is Peter Schumann. The name "Bread & Puppet" is derived from the theater's practice of sharing its own fresh bread, served for free with aioli, with the audience of each performance as a means of creating community, and from its central principle that art should be as basic to life as bread. Some have heard echoes of the Roman phrase "bread and circuses" or the labor slogan "Bread and Roses" in the theater's name as well, though these are not often mentioned in Bread & Puppet's own explanations of its name. The Bread and Puppet Theater participates in parades including Fourth of July celebrations, notably in Cabot, Vermont, with many effigies including a satirical Uncle Sam on stilts. , Elka Schumann.
