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.

Edward Albee in my opinion is one of the greatest American palywrights and this play demonstrates it. The actors were superb and the drama was intense and soul-searching. Exciting as we learn the secrets behind the Boy and Girl's behavior and...continued
Once upon a time there was a Boy, a Girl, and their Baby who lived together in idyllic bliss, far away, so they thought, from anything that could harm them. One day, a strange Woman and an even stranger Man found them. Suddenly, there were only questions, memories, doubts, hopes, fears, truths, and lies. And then there was a Boy, a Girl, a Man, and a Woman. And a baby. Or was there a baby? Exquisite Corps Presents The Play About the Baby, the contemporary masterpiece by Pulitzer-Prize winning playwright Edward Albee (author of Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf, Seascape, and others). In Baby’s world, nothing makes sense except everything, reality is only one side of illusion, and memory has a mind of its own.
