Press notes for House of Gold read: "A lost little girl is brought back to a house, very much like the one she grew up in, by a suspicious Man and Woman, who have recently lost (or misplaced) their own child. While negotiating with the strange characters that inhabit this home - a seedy Detective who lives in the basement and a shady man with a van who sits parked outside - the girl befriends Jasper, a plump, surly 13 year-old white boy who lives down the street. The children form an awkward friendship, in an attempt to survive the increasingly menacing forces threatening them from inside their own homes."
Upcoming presentations include Spoon Lake Blues by Josh Tobiessen, Carthage by Emily Schwend and Bogwog by Abbie Spallen.
