In This Place, Every Child Is Destined To Be A Soldier.
Knock Knock describes what it’s like to be a parent in the shadow of armed conflict. The play follows the journey of Ilana, a single mother whose job as an Israeli Officer of Casualty Notifications is to knock on the door of families whose sons or daughters have been lost in war. Her conflict between motherhood and her duty as a citizen reaches a deafening climax when her only son chooses to serve on the front-line.
Played entirely by Niv Petel, this immersive physical mono-drama cuts through the thick curtain of politics to tell a story about parenthood, friendship, love and sacrifice.
