According to the dictionary, "mimetic" means "imitative." Given that this original play is set primarily at the San Francisco Zoo, the title could be referring to the actors mimicking animals. Or maybe the performers are playing animals mimicking humans. After 90 minutes, you can't be sure, which is frustrating.

Notes: RIPE Theatre is at it again, finding inventive ways to write and create fresh, innovative performances. Like their award winning @six (winner of Best Ensemble in the 2006 SF Fringe Festival) Mimetic’s script is derived from the characters, a mimicry of human reactions, animal behaviors, and the search for reason and meaning – “Why does this always happen to ME?!” Dharma, fate, and free-will come into question in this dark farce where a turtle’s shell is its fort from which it lobs verbal abuse upon the sacrificial kangaroo – where the hero craves conflict with the boy next door – and a whole new meaning is brought to the term, “Wise-Ass.”
