Münsterspiel is in ROLLING STONE!

"... all your punk rock hopes and dreams are bursting into brilliant flame in the German city of Münster..."
--ROLLING STONE, "Real Life Rock Top Ten"

- - - - -

Munsterspiel encourages its audience to think Dadaist/Surrealist style, it pokes fun at its own "truthiness" with anachronisms, time travel, intersection of different space/time realities and characters, and an ominous, unseen, hegemonic force that exists to squelch all variation, revolt, or alternative to its overwielding power --Windy City Times

- - - - -

the anachronistic elements  not just the time travel, but the visions of future inventions and words that plague multiple characters  contribute to a heightened, satirical, and almost Brechtian feel that works quite well. --PerformInk

What if enough people decided to disagree about the rules of the universe?

From the untethered mind of artistic director Gregory Peters comes Münsterspiel: a true-ish tragicomedy about the Anabaptist takeover of the city of Münster in 1534. Pushing the Protestant Reformation to full-on revolution, their communist theocracy held out against a year-and-a-half long siege. Inspired in part by Greil Marcuss Lipstick Traces, Munsterspiel is a dadaist romp through the Reformation Alamo, a time travel odyssey through what-could-have-been and what-could-come, and a prayer for the end of the world.
