In a small town in the rural Midwest, two childhood friends sneak away to play pretend in a nearby deserted fairground.

About the Company: LA MAMA


LA MAMA First Floor Theater : 74A East 4th Street
Open: 06/02/16- Close: 06/19/16 SUDDENLY, A KNOCK AT THE DOOR
“I can’t do it like this!” protests the writer EITAN KATZEN to the BEARDED MAN, the SURVEY TAKER and the PIZZA DELIVERY woman who have come knocking at his door. Brandishing weapons, they make the stakes clear: a story or your life! So the writer held hostage to these three strange muses begins to weave his tales, played out on the stage by the same characters that are holding him captive. Based on eight stories from the latest anthology by award-winning Israeli author and filmmaker Etgar Keret, Suddenly, A Knock at the Door is a celebration of storytelling and the magic of art—an ensemble piece written for six actors and two musicians playing over thirty different roles. It is a comic drama of a modern writer weaving extra-ordinary tales in the middle of Tel Aviv. Here stories are the currency, a matter of life and death.
