FREE! Come see Tony Award-winning SF Mime Troupe’s “Ripple Effect” this weekend! 

When: Aug. 23-24 2014
Price: FREE
SF Mime Troupe’s is performing another free showing of “Ripple Effect” at Frances Willard/Ho Chi Minh Park on August 23rd & 24th at 2pm with music starting at 1:30pm.

Ripple Effect”, a musical comedic tale of intersecting lives and cultures that reflect the familiar neighborhood tensions that are polarizing San Franciscans today. It’s “wrapped in a brightly written, laugh-laden, altogether chipper package that makes it one of the most enjoyable Mime Troupe outings in recent memory.”
- SF Chronicle

Done in their characteristic quick-change, singing & dancing, a cast of four, playing multiple characters, tell the story of three very different women, all at a critical life point, who find themselves in a boat on San Francisco Bay, brought together by chance. Although they perceive each other as “different”, each is a member of the working class and has been betrayed by a system that rewards only the few motivated solely by greed and self-interest.
