The War on Women, a new collaboration of Boulder theater ensembles Square Product Theatre and Local Theater Company, will address rape culture and sexual abuse in a pair of productions this year, beginning with Square Product’s regional premiere of House of Gold, Gregory S. Moss’s view of an allegorical world as experienced by a fictionalized JonBenét Ramsey. “It’s about something much larger than what happened in Boulder twenty years ago,” Harrison says of the company’s controversial choice for its season opener in a town that’s never gotten over the unsolved mystery of the highly publicized murder. “It’s not a piece of realism. The characters serve as archetypes; they aren’t meant to represent or fictionalize the real people involved in JonBenét’s story.” House of Gold opens at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, July 27, and runs on selected dates through August 12 at the ATLAS Black Box Theater on the University of Colorado Boulder campus. For tickets, $11 to $22, visit houseofgold.brownpapertickets.com or call 1-800-838-3006. Local Theater Company’s companion production of Michael Yates Crowley’s The Rape of the Sabine Women, by Grace B. Matthias opens October 27 at the Dairy Arts Center; learn more at localtheatercompany.org.
