During his short life in Stalinist Russia, writer Daniil Kharms was a well-known author of children's literature -- until he was arrested for treason in 1941 and left to die in his prison cell. Friends hid his vast secret body of work (including plays and short stories intended for adult audiences) until it was politically safe to release the works decades later. Part of the Emerging Theatre Company program at the Boston Center for the Arts, imaginary beasts now brings KNOCK! | The Daniil Kharms Project to the stage. An original piece created from a collection of Kharms' work, KNOCK! follows a troupe of madmen, fools and geniuses into a strange and comical world where a simple knock on the door can lead to redemption or the ultimate end.

Great show. Very funny and moving, sometimes in the same breath! Seldom (maybe never) have we seen such a high-energy performer. Sue could tone it down a notch and still blow us away with her intelligent, insightful, clever and above all hilarious...continued
Quotes & Highlights
“Costello rivets the audience with a comic’s gift for delivery and wit and an actress’ skill with emotion.” -The Patriot Ledger
“Sue Costello’s charismatic performance is mesmerizing as you march with her through her teenage years on the Dorchester streets through her life in New York and Hollywood.” —Colin Quinn
“As a performer, Costello is energetic and fearless …_ Words _is long and at times indulgent, but it’s powerful, thanks to Costello’s frank charisma and her ability to mingle humor with tragedy.”-Boston Herald
Acclaimed comic, actor and writer Sue Costello tracks her life growing up in a chaotic home in Dorchester and how it led her to a desperate need for fame and money, and to the final realization that her past does not have to become her future. Alternately heartbreaking and hilarious, the show combines Costello’s street-smart Boston take-no-prisoners wit with her ability to bring an audience to tears.
