It ain't sexy, it don't sing and dance, but it's the cost of doing biz-ness, plain and simple. Times are tough for everyone, we know, but if you could kick in a few extra dollars by adopting a bill
the Mime Troupe will be able to keep the show on the road!

"Central Works serves up the laughs in this delicious take on a circle of sweet old grandmotherly bakers, who just happen to be fervent revolutionaries. But baking pies and cakes isn't enough to satisfy these four intrepid refugees from the '60's (and 50's, and '40's), and their burning desire to "Up the Revolution!"
Oct 18-Nov 23 at Central Works.

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.
