A fundraiser for the San Francisco Mime Troupe's Winter 2012 production of a new, Occupy-inspired adaptation of Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol!"

The Tony Award-winning, never silent, always off-center Mime Troupe presents a staged reading of a new, worker-oriented interpretation of Dickens' story of poverty, redemption, and humanity. Set in a contemporary Occupy encampment, and written by SFMT Resident Playwright Michael Gene Sullivan, and featuring Troupe veterans Velina Brown (FOR THE GREATER GOOD, POSIBILIDAD, TOO BIG TO FAIL), Lisa Hori-Garcia (POSIBILIDAD, TOO BIG TO FAIL, RED STATE), Michael Gene Sullivan (2012 - THE MUSICAL!, TOO BIG TO FAIL, POSIBILIDAD), Bob Ernst (RED STATE, COAST CITY CONFIDENTIAL), Brian Rivera (POSIBILIDAD, DOING GOOD), and Noah James Butler (RED STATE, DOING GOOD), this adaptation tells the classic story from the worker's perspective. Exuberant and sobering, full of folk songs, rousing labor anthems, and delivered with the Troupe's particular brand of scathing political satire, this "Carol" reclaims Dickens from the one percent, and brings his message back to the people!

Reading at Oscar Grant Plaza, Christmas Eve, 2011
