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.

Guests:

Velina Brown, actor with the San Francisco Mime Troupe

Michael Gene Sullivan, actor, director and resident playwright with the San Francisco Mime Troupe

Keiko Shimosato Carreiro, actor, director and designer with the San Francisco Mime Troupe
