As part of Local Theater Company’s commitment to engaging theatergoers—and new-to-theater audiences—in productions and conversations that spark camaraderie, learning, and contemplation, Hard Talks has been developed by Artistic Director Pesha Rudnick and Outreach Coordinator Steve San Luis to talk, openly and safely, about issues of rape culture and sexual assault in our community. The talks are being presented simultaneously with our fall production of The Rape of the Sabine Women, by Grace B. Matthias.

All of the events are offered free of charge thanks to support from the Boulder Arts Commission. RSVPs are strongly encouraged.
