San Francisco Mime Troupe Spoofs Tech BoomDownload audio (MP3)
The San Francisco Mime Troupe started as an experimental actors' workshop in 1959. Since then, it has become a Bay Area institution, tackling social issues with its satire and pop culture spoofs. The latest production, "Ripple Effect," casts a critical eye on the tech boom and class warfare as it follows three characters: an activist, an immigrant and a tech worker. The troupe talks about its satirical comedy and 55 years in San Francisco.
