Checkpoint is a brand new, tragi-comic drama from Startled Cat! Theatre in partnership with the brilliant Room Above @ The White Bear.
In a time of hard borders and systematic segregation, enigmatic stranger Roman, arrives at a checkpoint and attempts to bluff and bribe his way past two incompetent border-guards…
Checkpoint satirises the absurd logic of xenophobic paranoia – inspired by the dark history of the Berlin Wall and the current political climate. The story unravels the concept of hard borders, shining a light on the psyche of those who uphold them with a savage sense of humour to boot.
This is a brilliant opportunity to be among the first to see the brilliantly funny Checkpoint ahead of its Edinburgh Fringe Festival debut in August.
Not a stranger to taking a shot in the dark? Then do not miss this unmissable black comedy from Startled Cat!
