The SF Mime Troupe has been performing in the parks of San Francisco, the East Bay and beyond for decades, having come from the Actor's Workshop in 1959. Its program always starts with music by a live band at 1 p.m. On the 4th of July, we are treated to the irreverent version of the Star Spangled Banner by Jimi Hendrix and an opening act by the gay men's theater group, Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence. This event is an old San Francisco favorite that can be enjoyed by the whole family with a picnic, and it is free.

Oil and Water - SF Mime Troupe
OIL & WATER is actually two shorter plays - CRUDE INTENTIONS and DEAL WITH THE DEVIL
Climate change, pollution, water scarcity, and fossil fuel dependence, and issues too big to be dealt with in just one story, so this year’s Mime Troupe production presents two one-act musicals linked by environmental themes depicting the abusive relationships society has with our natural resources and the lengths we go to satisfy our thirsts.
A poisoned rainforest river, a senator mysteriously murdered in his office, a sinister criminal conspiracy, and an oil refinery ablaze in the Bay Area – with the survival of the human race in question, the stakes could not be any higher.
