The Tony and OBIE award winning San Francisco Mime Troupe is taking it's critically-acclaimed hit show FREEDOMLAND to St. Mary's College, Maryland October!

"The show is high--energy and often 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 in this supposedly "post-racial" society."
Marin IJ - 7/8/15

"Once again, the San Francisco Mime Troupe has produced an action-initiating play that deserves to be seen far and wide this very summer."
Talkin' Broadway - July 2015

"The production should break under the weight of its content aspirations, but playwright Sullivan and director Snow keep the pathos on simmer until the end. The laughs, served in a steady flow, are justly earned and make it almost too easily bearable to consider the tragic situation on display." - 7/8/15
Poster Design: Lawton Lovely
"Bravura performance." "Brilliant." "Freedomland stands out as one of the most thoughtful and sobering (of the Troupe's productions.) It is fraught with emotion and analysis. Call it, for want of a better phrase, a "musical tragedy," fueled with a polemicist's intensity, a Shakespearean reach, and a doo-wop dollop of tuneful songs. Freedomland rises to an important new level of radical criticism." - 7/19/15

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. As in all Mime Troupe shows FREEDOMLAND is as current as this morning's newspaper, and urgent as this evening's protest. Our plan is to bring presenters from the Midwest and East Coast to the performance, which we hope will spark not only conversations of the issues, but also interest in bringing FREEDOMLAND back for a more extensive tour Fall 2017.

Summer Appeal

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!

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.
