- This production of Daniel O'Mahony's Kaldor City audio play was part of the 'Greater Manchester Fringe Festival 2012' performed between 28 July to 30 July at the Lass O'Gowrie pub.
- This version dispenses with the opening prologue from the original audio priduction.
- A special premiere presentation of the script, in the form of a read-through by the cast seated in front of a live audience, along with Robots of Death, was performed at the Fab Café on Portland Street in advance of the stage play's debut. For this performance only, former Blake's 7 star Paul Darrow appeared as Kaston Iago.
- Unlike Robots of Death, the role of the robot, V23, was performed without a mask, with make-up applied to the actress' face in order to give the suggestion of a robot aspect.
- Promotional artwork designed by Adrian Salmon. 
- Speaker to Animals described the play "as a better presentation of O'Mahony's script than the audio", citing Kate Millest's Blayes to be a "much more credible assassin than Tracey Russell's" and Morag Peacock's portrayal of robot V23 as an "an impressively restrained performance".
- The Fiction Stroker says "There is no doubt that Storm Mine is a complex piece that has a plot across many levels. But the sheer scale and ambition of the plot has got to be admired, and the efforts that Director Sam Al-Hamdani and his cast have gone to in order to bring this to the stage. Yet, against the odds, it works".
