Since 1990 (just before the start of the First Gulf War) Great Small 
Works has been creating a series of toy theater productions called 
"Terror As Usual,"  which dealt explicitly or implicitly with the 
culture of political terrorism. To date,  11 episodes of TAU have been 
produced.  Episode #9: "Doom" is reprinted in the current issue of 
Puppetry International.

Also-- one of Great Small Work's first major theatrical productions was 
an adaptation  of  G.K. Chesterton's pioneering spy  novel "The Man who 
was Thursday," In which an undercover police detective in Edwardian 
London, trying to penetrate an anarchist terror cell, discovers that 
the entire cell consists of other undercover detectives.

And of course for over 40 years now Peter Schumann and the Bread and 
Puppet Theater have never tired of directly addressing issues of 
political and state repression. Their current production  deals with 
the semantic distinction between "Terrorists" (retail, individual 
purveyors of misery) and "Horrorists" (wholesale governmental suppliers 
of the same.)
