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.

Highly recommended. If you are able to find on-street parking, you will have time during intermission to feed the meter.

A battle between good and evil is at the center of this spectacle and (spoiler alert) good triumphs, making it family-friendly fare for kids of all ages.” —Metro Boston
