Every summer the Mateel presents a performance from the Tony award-winning San Francisco Mime Troupe who produce hilarious satirical plays about current political issues.  2018 Seeing Red: A Time Traveling Musical travels from present day to 1912 and asks the questions: what will it take to get people to stop voting against their interests? And how do we overcome the divide-and-conquer tactics that keep us all down?

Written by Rotimi Agbabiaka with Joan Holden

Music & Lyrics by Ira Marlowe

Directed by Edris Cooper-Anifowoshe

SEEING RED features Mime Troupe veterans Lisa Hori-Garcia, Keiko Shimosato Carreiro, Michael Gene Sullivan, as well as Andre Amarotico

And band members Patrick Byers, Andrew Niven and Daniel Savio

It’s Election Night 2018 and Bob swears she’ll never vote again. A lifetime of fading fortunes made this former Obama voter take a chance on the new guy promising change-Donald J. Trump. But it’s two years into his presidency and Bob’s still waiting to start winning. Tonight she’s telling everyone in her small-town bar that all politicians are liars, the system is rigged, and nothing’s ever gonna change.

Along comes a mysterious stranger with an intriguing offer. He’ll show her an America where working people come together to demand a brighter future, where socialism isn’t a dirty word. He’ll take her all the way … to 1912.

Bob soon finds herself traveling back to a time when the Socialist Party was winning millions of American votes; uncovering a hidden history and realizing that she may have more in common with those pesky progressives on the coasts. She begins to ask: what will it take to get people to stop voting against their interests? How do we overcome the divide-and-conquer tactics that keep us all down? When did our electoral choices get so limited? And isn’t it time to get off the swinging pendulum that’s left us at our current impasse?

The hike will end at 4 p.m. Bring lunch, plenty of water, dress in layers and wear sturdy hiking shoes. A sketchbook or notebook is also suggested, and a leisurely lunch at Bear Harbor is planned.
