SF Mime Troupe is taking its critically-acclaimed hit show FREEDOMLAND to
St. Mary's College, Maryland in October, with a local performance at Laney College in Oakland!
"...hilarious, while also serving as a sobering depiction of how entire segments of the population can be automatically seen as a threat because of the color of their skin..."
FREEDOMLAND, is a tragic musical farce about the militarization of the police, the continuing War on Drugs, the institutionalized racism of our judicial system, and how these three converge on, and are besieging, Black men in America.
900 Fallon St, Oakland
Monday, October 17
(suggested donation: $20 general, $5 students)
No one turned way due to lack of funds.

"Once again, the San Francisco Mime Troupe has produced an action-initiating play that deserves to be seen far and wide..."
Talkin' Broadway - July 2015
"The laughs, served in a steady flow, are justly earned and make it almost too easily bearable to consider the tragic situation on display."
Examiner.com - 7/8/15
"Bravura performance." "Brilliant." "Freedomland... stands out as one of the most thoughtful and sobering (of the Troupe's productions)."

For nearly six decades (and through multiple elections) our free summer park season has remained our touchstone
. During this election summer you will be asked to give money to a variety of campaigns and candidates. Please also consider a generous tax-deductible donation to the San Francisco Mime Troupe in support of our efforts on and offstage. This summer, our goal is to school our fellow citizens on how not to get "schooled" and ultimately "Trumped." It's gonna take more than a village this time around. Join us in the parks and in the booths. Read more and donate

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.
