Playing in the park
on August 31, 2012
SF MIME returned to Richmond Thursday night, with a live outdoor performance in Nicholl Park. About 50 people braved chilly weather and a stiff wind to watch the play, a political satire poking fun at both investment bankers and Occupy Wall Street. Written and directed by Michael Gene Sullivan, the play had the full title, “For the Greater Good, or The Last Election: A Melodrama of Farcical Proportions,” and included live music, plenty of singing and slapstick. “They definitely have a clear message,” said Richmond resident Kristen Rosenkrans, who attended with her one-year-old son, Brook Rosenkrans-Rogers, in tow. “But they make people reflect on how our egos get involved in politics.”
