Youth Theater Performances: Nov 10 & 11
Our YTP intensive theater workshop, where high school students spend 8 weeks building their acting and improvisation skills, is back! This Fall we're reviving a YTP play from the 1990s called Inside Out. With the guidance of the YTP teaching team, our students will mount a production of this brilliant play, tackling its still-relevant themes of bullying, homophobia, racism, and the school-to-prison pipeline with trademark Mime Troupe boldness and comedy. 

Want to get involved? We could use some cooks or donated meals for our Feb-May Youth Project. Contact Lisa:

Inform yourself! Inform on your neighbor! 

Follow Special Agent Christian White on a cheerfully creepy tour of declassified government surveillance documents. White probes the redacted (blacked-out) texts of the FBI's notorious Counterintelligence Programs, searching for the words erased in the name of the Freedom of Information Act.

Learn fun techniques for the infiltration of activist groups, how to earn benefits and a pension as an agent provocateur, and how to, in the words of J. Edgar Hoover, "expose, disrupt, misdirect, discredit or otherwise neutralize" your neighbors!

These are our tax dollars at work, folks; we might as well enjoy it.

COINTELSHOW has been performed by writer/activist L.M. Bogad in theatres, galleries, labor halls, and community centers for the past twelve years. 
"This play is important for activists and apathetics, clergymen and clerks, artists and engineers...all of us, because we all have good reason to ask 'Who Watches the Watchmen?' As Bogad makes all too clear, it will have to be us." -The Yes Men (Andy Bichlbaum and Mike Bonanno)

"The Left can also laugh, even at the worst of circumstances... Audiences will chuckle along as they engage with this creative teach-in/manifesto on how to challenge, subvert, and educate ourselves about our country's ever-growing 'Patriot Acts.'"  -Benjamin Shepard, PhD., author of Queer Political Performance and Protest: Play, Pleasure and Social Movements
Date: Early in 2016 - keep an eye on our home page
Time: TBD
