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.

“We’re thrilled to premiere another Boston playwright this year,” said Artistic Director James Peter Sotis. “After our enormous success with last year’s premiere of Bea Wissel’s IRNEnominated Burning the Barn, we are delighted to showcase a new local playwright again this summer. We first recognized Zach’s creativity when he performed as Mairtin Hanlon in VTG’s 2009 production of Martin McDonagh’s A Skull in Connemara and we’re glad to have helped him develop this play. His sharp focus on wit and wordplay really highlights the plays themes of honor, trust, and communication.”
