Background


Niv Petel weaves a vivid and detailed familial relationship in Knock Knock, an immersive physical mono-drama about the effects of National Service on everyday life.


Inspired by real life situations, and with a lot of humour, Knock Knock cuts through the thick curtain of politics to tell a story about parenthood, friendship, love and sacrifice.


You can read ActDrop's review of a previous performance of Knock Knock at the Etcetera Theatre.


Synopsis


How would you raise your child, if you knew that one day their turn will come to hold a rifle?


As a liaison officer for the army, Ilana, a single mother, supports families who've lost their sons and daughters to the wars.


But when the time comes for her own only son, Elad, to wear the army uniform, she faces a life-changing dilemma.


How is it to grow up in a place where children are destined to be soldiers from the day they are born?


The parents - all former soldiers themselves - know that one day, a liaison officer might knock on their door too.
