Announcement

On Sunday July 23 during the Mime Troupe's performance at Yerba Buena Gardens there was an onstage accident, injuring veteran Trouper Velina Brown. We are happy to report that Velina did not break any bones, but the remainder of the performance had to be cancelled, as Velina was taken by ambulance to the SF General Trauma Center to make sure she received the best care for her neck injuries as well her jammed wrist and twisted ankle. To give Velina time to recover and be cleared by her doctor to perform, Wednesday July 26th's performance has be CANCELLED. Currently the Thursday July 27th indoor performance will go on as planned.

Summer Appeal

As in all our 58 years, we still do not take corporate funding. So we ask for your financial support to help us break down those walls, initiate conversation and inspire activism. Give generously and challenge your family and friends of varied opinions to a discussion following our show this summer. Now more than ever, we need to talk with each other and break down the walls of ignorance and fear. We must choose love over fear and health over greed for the sake of our children and our planet.

Press Room Link

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?

Ghost Limb

The Mathematics of Love

Ghost Limb image The Mathematics of Love takes place in the lobby of the Los Angeles Biltmore Hotel at the turn into the 21st century. Peaches, an aging, mid-staged Alzheimers, Mexican woman awaits the arrival of her out-of-town son, "God." Enter the 16th century Native female slave-turned-slaveholder, Malinche, whose satirical presence digs up the dirt of a once Tongva landscape, the nagging disquiet of those "Old San Gabriel Mission Days," and an unreconciled story between mother and daughter.

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.
