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.

Quotes & Highlights
“Angela Carter’s radio-play takes on “Sleeping Beauty” and “Little Red Riding Hood,” are a little different from the versions you grew up with. Cannibalism, vampires, werewolves, and blood — lots of blood — figure prominently.”—Boston Globe
“Many artists have done their own personal take on fairy tales like “Little Red Riding Hood” and “Sleeping Beauty,” but few of them really elevate the genre. Carter’s radio plays “The Company of Wolves” and “Vampirella” do.“—_”EDGE Boston":http://www.edgeboston.com/entertainment/theatre/reviews//150648/hairy_tales_

“_Matthew Wood evokes the poetry and the pulse of two very different Carter gems in ’adults-only’ one- act dramatizations of “The Company of Wolves” and “Vampirella (Lady of the House of Love)” … “Vampirella” is a world-class haunt.“—_”My South End":http://www.mysouthend.com/index.php?ch=arts&sc=&sc2=news&sc3=&id=150429
