Leaving their increasingly impoverishing rural life to immigrate to the city, a multi-generational  family finds themselves relieved of the restricting pressure of customs on individual freedom and yet struggling to adapt to urban life.  Bringing together three different generations of one family, Hasan Erkek focuses on the links of each generation with the “past”, the “present” and the “future” during the process of transformation.

Threshold”, one of the most significant plays of Hasan Erkek, received the Yunus Emre Award given by Bakırköy Municipality in 1997. The play, seen by thirty thousand people when staged by City Theatres of Istanbul Municipality in 1998 and again by thirty thousand audiences when performed by the Ankara State Theatre in 2008, achieved a record in its own right. It was published in Turkish and French in Turkey, in French in France, in Russian in Azerbaijan, and in Armenian in Armenia. It will be published in Spain very soon.

His plays have been performed by more than 35 theatres around the globe, including in Algeria, Lebanon, Kosovo, Cyprus, Cameroon, as well as at Turkish National  and City Theaters.
