"Suddenly, a Knock at the Door" by Robin E. Goldfin, based on stories by Etgar Keret

“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.

“Suddenly, a Knock at the Door” is a new play adapted by Robin Goldfin and directed by Jeff Maynard, with live instrumental music by Oren Neiman, based on stories by award winning Israeli author and filmmaker Etgar Keret. It is a celebration of storytelling and the magic of art—an ensemble piece written for six actors and two musicians playing some thirty different roles.

Playwright Robin Goldfin has chosen eight stories from the latest critically acclaimed anthology by Etgar Keret to create the comic drama of a modern writer weaving eight extraordinary tales in the middle of Tel Aviv.
