Treadwell Gold is a new play in development by Rachel Atkins based on the book of the same name by Sheila Kelly. The play takes place between July 4, 1916 and July 4, 1917, and tells the story of the famous Treadwell cave-in and flood that led to the closure of most of the large scale mining operations on the Douglas side of Gastineau Channel. The play touches on the themes of man’s stewardship of the land, the corporate leadership’s relationship with labor, and the role of work and place in life. The script is in draft form and currently in development. Thanks to a generous donor, we are on our way to raising enough funds to complete the script and produce the work in time to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the cave-in in time for July 4th, 2017. Contributions to this campaign will be dedicated to this project.
