A place for developing new plays and new community.

  • Children performing on the Silk Moth Stage
  • Actor Jamie Butler reads from her script while playwright Pam Mandigo listens intently.
  • dyed silk streaming in the sunlight
  • Aili talks iwth an actor on the stage
  • A river in high summer, with a little boy playing in it.
  • A closeup of a picnic blanket with food and flowers
  • A sunset over a field in Rockingham County, VA, with the mountains in the distance

Come early. Stay late. Bring a picnic. Bring a friend. Experience wonder. Experience connection.

We’re creating a new vision for theater, inspired by the play-going experience of Shakespeare’s England. It’s an event, more than a show.

Silk Moth Stage is nature-driven, audience-connected, grounded in place.

And it needs you.

You can participate in Silk Moth Stage by auditioning, coming to our shows, donating, following us on social media (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter), sharing our posts, and telling your friends about us.
