Two hearts, one cottage and a book with all the ‘answers’…
A modern folk story for our times..
Once upon a time, tucked away in a small rickety cottage, deep in the heart of the forest, a woodcutter goes about his life in a world of woodland magic. When one day a stranger knocks at his door bringing with her a most unexpected of spells…
But when the pressure of social expectation worms its way to the centre of their lives bringing confusion to their hearts, a choice must be made; stay and conform or run and be free… or is there another way?
Hot Coals Theatre returns with a fairytale of love and longing. Expect to laugh and cry in this poignant and moving piece using physical theatre, clown and mask to capture the hearts of grownups and thinking families.
Knock Knock has been created to be completely inclusive to both Deaf & hearing audiences.
Suitable for all ages
This performance is accessible to both D/deaf and hearing audiences.
“Thank you very much for inviting us to your sharing of Knock Knock. We really enjoyed it. Good luck with this project… I think it is in very good shape.”
Paula Garfield, Deafinitely Theatre
“This is an emotionally engaging and beautifully presented story…A truly beautiful piece of theatre”

Hot Coals Theatre
Hot Coals Theatre is formed of core members Clare-Louise English and Jo Sargeant. We met whilst studying together on the first ever year of the MA Theatre Lab course at RADA.
We, Hot Coals Theatre, believe in theatre, we believe in the power of theatre to change the world, but we believe we can do it with a lightness of touch and with laughter: laugh at us, to laugh at life.
We are a clown, mask and physical theatre company who takes inspiration from the likes of Charlie Chaplin. His sensitivity and detailed work is something we try to emulate and his belief in tackling hard-hitting issues with the lightest of touch sits right at the core of our work
We at Hot Coals Theatre believe gentleness breeds openness and only through openness can you really move your audience from laughter to tears. So, come and warm yourself by our fire, let us take you softly by the hand and lead you into our world, it’s familiar but somehow strange.
