      Spotlight: The Knocking Within

      It is with some trepidation that we embark on our India tour.  We will be performing The Knocking Within, a work that portrays a relationship that begins in beauty and romance, and ends in violence, destruction, and perhaps disillusionment.  We will be performing in an India that is reeling in the aftermath of a horrific rape and murder, and in which many young people are demanding change - change in law, change in policy, and change in culture.  May their demands be met with action.        


      We will also be taking The Knocking Within to Montreal in June, and back to Boston in the Fall.   


      We will be scheduling school-day performances during our Boston run for high school students.  The performances will be followed by discussions led by relationship violence counselors.  We will also go into participating schools to present workshops prior to and following the performances.  


      "The Knocking Within is a very intense and personal experience...the physical expression of growing distance and dissatisfaction is intense, and the emotional violence and isolation is chilling and deep."
