'Our Domestic Resurrection Circus'

When: Saturdays, Sundays, 3 p.m. Continues through Aug. 29

Glover’s activist performance troupe Bread and Puppet Theater debuted its signature circus show in 1970. The subversive spectacular has had many names over the years, such as Man = Carrot Circus and Nothing Is Not Ready Circus. For its 51st anniversary, however, the show once again bears its original title of Our Domestic Resurrection Circus. Using a combination of papier-mâché puppets, human actors and traditional circus tropes, Bread and Puppet calls attention to urgent issues of the day. The political production takes place every Saturday and Sunday through August 29 at Bread and Puppet’s home base, as well as in Middlebury in July and September.

Price: $10.
