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
“An exhilarating mix of political satire, modern morality, and multimedia spectacle. A fantastic theatrical event.” —London Guardian
“A sharp-witted and rollicking business thriller to dazzle the eye and tickle the brain.” —Time Out New York
In Enron, one of the most infamous scandals in financial history is transformed into a theatrical epic. Mixing classical tragedy with savage comedy, the play follows a group of flawed men and women in a narrative of greed and loss which reviews the tumultuous 1990s and casts a new light on the financial turmoil in which the world finds itself in 2010. Inspired by real-life events, and using music, movement, projections, and pure theatricality, Enron is a financial vaudeville that captures the circus feeling that precipitated the collapse of the energy giant.
