House of Gold
by Gregory S. Moss

Directed by Gleason Bauer


A lost little girl is brought back to a house, very much like the one she grew up in, by a strange Man and Woman, who have recently lost (or misplaced) their own child. While negotiating with the bizarre characters that inhabit this home, she befriends a surly, lonely neighborhood boy. The children form an awkward friendship, in an attempt to survive the increasingly menacing forces threatening them from inside their own homes.


"...there is enough thoughtful commentary here to elevate the proceedings, enough intriguing experimental devices (including live video projections) to make for a compelling production...The 90-minute one-act play is a surreal ride that’s surprisingly effective and even profound at times, finding more in the story than mere titillation." - Joanne Ostrow, The Denver Post


"[House of Gold] is successful in harnessing its brutality to invite introspection. It raises themes about whiteness, sexual fantasy and the quest for immortality. But most disturbing is the way it challenges the innocent nobility of what it means to rear children in America." - Sarah Haas, Boulder Weekly


"As an impressionistic exploration of evil, a take on the sheer horror of JonBenét’s murder, House of Gold is absorbing and effective" - Juliet Wittman, Westword


"On the whole, the effect is surreal and dreamlike — it helps remove the action from the real-life facts of the Ramsey case and place it in an allegorical framework. Bauer directs a skilled ensemble, actors that approach their roles with nuance and sensitivity." - Adam Goldstein, The Daily Camera
