Theater: Human Nature

David Simpson and Jane Lapiner, both San Francisco Mime Troupe veterans, launched the theater group, Human Nature, out of Petrolia, which produced plays largely centered on issues of climate change, starting with Queen Salmon in 1990, a play exploring the ways that various parties share responsibility for the alarming decline in salmon populations.

David Simpson writes: “Human Nature is a touring theater company dedicated to addressing crucial societal issues related to environment and social equity through original theatrical productions. The company was launched with a major dance, Human Nature, from which we took our name.”
