"Brightly written, laugh-laden... one of the most enjoyable Mime Troupe outings in recent memory."
SF Bay Guardian - 7/9/14

"But most of all, it drives home the point that to accept the status quo is as much a political stance as to fight against it. As Deborah says, 'There is no such thing as not political.'

About The Show

The San Francisco Mime Troupe proudly presents our Summer 2014 production " Ripple Effect".

View a trailer for this year's summer show!
Here some song clips:
This Is Too Much
We're Almost There 
Skyrocketing rents. Loss of diversity. Certain workers welcomed like saviors, while other workers are discarded like trash. The War on the Poor. And San Francisco - the capital of the Revolution - becoming the center of corporate surveillance technology. Veteran of the Revolution Deborah Johnson thinks she knows. So does immigrant-turned-super patriot Sunny Nguyen. And do does Silicon Valley's newest star, small-town transplant Jeanine Adenauer And each has reason to despise the other. So how do they end up together in a tour boat in the middle of the San Francisco Bay? Each one has a story to tell; a broken dream that brought them to this moment, and a past that divides them from the others. But can the old commie, the tech newbie, and the flag-waving beautician find common ground ashore, or will they all sink under the waves? 

Who - or what - is S.U.S.I.? And can anyone stop... The Octopus
