DETAILS from Theatre MINE's 2018 festival:
The Silverton Theatre Mine continues a tradition begun in 2005 by Mollie Mook-Fiddler of inviting resident playwrights to Silverton to develop and see read their new plays for theatre by local, regional, and national actors.
In early June, TSTM welcomed actors and playwrights from the Silverton region and beyond and from organizations including San Juan College (Farmington, NM), Durango Arts Center, The Raven Narratives Podcast Project, and Indiana University-Bloomington.
The venue for the readings and performances was generously provided by Silverton's historic Grand Imperial Hotel.
