Presented by RISER Edmonton 2023
MINE is presented by RISER Edmonton with Common Ground Arts Society. To learn more, click here.
Hundreds of feet below the ocean floor, in the dark, in the damp, the men of the deeps mine for coal. Down below, they’re forced to crawl – but on the surface, they’ll resist, and rise again. Based on an unbelievable true story, MINE shares the struggle of the revolutionary Cape Breton coal mining communities at the turn of the twentieth century.
MINE will be presented as a work-in-process staged reading. All proceeds from Offer What You Will tickets go to support the future development of this work.
The reading on March 4 will be presented with ASL Interpretation by Robyn Lavender and Andrea Konowalec.
