The Tony Award-winning SF Mime Troupe opens in the Bay Area July 1, 2 & 4 with its 58th season premiering "WALLS"

WALLS asks the question:
How can a nation of immigrants declare war on immigration?
The answer: FEAR!

L. Mary Jones (Velina Brown) knows all about fear. As a top agent for I.C.E. - Immigration and Customs Enforcement - she knows how to stoke fear to keep her country safe. Fear of people like Bahdoon Samakab (Rotimi Agbabiaka), a Somali refugee escaping oppression, fear of Cliodhna Aghabullogue (Lizzie Calogero), an Irish woman yearning to be American, and fear of Zaniyah Nahuatl (Marilet Martinez), whose family comes from... here. As a foreigner in a land her people have worked for thousands of years suddenly Zaniyah is a criminal, an illegal, a "bad hombre." What part of herself will this American give up to pass as "American?" Will she? Can she? Should she? Can someone leave part of themselves behind without losing their mind? And is it better or worse that she crossed the border to find Agent L. Mary Jones - the woman she loves?

Winter Appeal

This critical moment in history is calling on us to be hyper-vigilant, to find new ways to collaborate and resist and to reach new audiences. But we literally cannot do it without you. With a Republican Congress, grant cuts are inevitable, which only increases competition between our fellow non-profits for both foundation and individual donation dollars. Without a Hamilton-sized box office, we continue to look to you, our partners in revolution, to give what you can to keep SFMT out-front and outspoken. Now more than ever, we need your financial support to keep our voices heard.Read more and donate!

News Letter



The San Francisco Mime Troupe does not do pantomime. We mean 'mime' in the ancient sense: to mimic. We are satirists, seeking to make you laugh at the absurdities of contemporary life, and at the same time see their causes. We travel the country and the world with our message of solidarity, comedy, and the plight of the worker in our increasingly corporatized democracy, and have done shows about most of the burning issues of our time - normally debunking the official story. And because we want our shows about the issues of the day to be seen by the people who are most effected by those issues- working class families who can't always afford to the ticket prices at the other Tony award winning theaters - we perform most of our shows free in public parks, for tens of thousands of our fellow citizens every summer.
