"The San Francisco Mime Troupe proudly presents our Summer 2013 production "Oil & Water." This year we are bringing you a program of two short plays linked by their focus on fossil fuels, natural resources, and climate change. …

Part 1: "Deal with the Devil" is set in the not too distant future and begins with the discovery of a dead body in the White House. Following decades of disastrous environmental decisions and a commitment to maintaining the status quo, the USA has fallen upon hard times. All appears lost until an unexpected solution presents itself- but is it worth the risk? Deal with the Devil draws upon elements of Film Noir and 1970s cop shows while asking the question "What will it take to break the cycle?"

Part 2: "Crude Intentions" takes place in modern day San Francisco. Tomasa and Gracie run a small restaurant in the city and are just starting to make ends meet when a visitor from Tomasa's past attempts to collect on an unfulfilled obligation. Tomasa's secret former life is revealed to Gracie, and the two are faced with a life altering dilemma. "Crude Intentions" is inspired by the ongoing legal struggles between Chevron and the plaintiffs who were awarded a $19 billion settlement for environmental devastation in the Ecuadorian Amazon."

The San Francisco Mime Troupe will be performing
"Oil and Water" at Mitchell Park in Palo Alto at
7PM on July 9th

Info at:­­

Performances are free, donations requested at the
END of the show.

Music starts at 6:30. Bring a picnic and something to sit on (I bring a groundcloth). If you drive, parking is hard to find unless you come early.
