Featuring an experimental improvised piece, mechanical sound sculptures and a massive kinetic sculpture titled Container Man, Bread and Puppet Theater's work is both politically stimulating and awe inspiring. The performance will take place at The Quarry, a former industrial site set on a 12-acre campus in the forest outside of Acton. The avant-garde performance-art piece features Bread & Puppet's signature visual elements, along with movement, vocals and pertinent political social commentary. Sourdough rye will be served and cheap art will be available for purchase after the show. Led by artist Peter Schumann, Bread and Puppet first made its mark in the experimental theater movement of the '60s and '70s in New York and is now thriving in its home in Vermont, independently pursuing its twin goals of art and activism. All sound sculptures were designed by Viktor Lois, the Hungarian-born artistic director of Contemporary Arts International. Learn More

Very pleasantly surprised by both the play and the production as had never been to this theatre before. The actors were great, and the play was thought-provoking. It's in a similar vein to "God of Carnage" and "Rapture Blister Burn." I was not going to go, as the gambling angle was played up in the poster art and description & I'm horribly bored by gambling talk, but the play does a good job of using gambling simply as a metaphor for life's tricky situations, a la that song "The Gambler." Has some interesting commentary about freedom and independence for women across different cultures. This production is every bit as good as something you'd see at the Huntington or the A.R.T.
The play is directed by Anna Trachtman.
Twins runs 80 minutes with no intermission, and is recommended for ages 12 and older due to adult language and themes.
