Exclusive preview of Startled Cat! Theatre's debut black-comedy Checkpoint, in partnership with the brilliant new Lightship Theatre.

Checkpoint satirises the absurd logic of xenophobic paranoia - inspired by the tragic history of the Berlin Wall and the current political climate. Checkpoint 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.

But what's it about I hear you ask?

Well, in a time of hard borders and systematic segregation, an enigmatic stranger Roman, arrives at Checkpoint-4 and attempts to bluff and bribe his way past two incompetent border-guards. Daredevil tourist or die-hard terrorist? Could the answer lie concealed in the contents of his curiously cumbersome trunk?

If you're not a stranger to taking a shot in the dark, then do not miss out on this unmissable black satire!

About Startled Cat Theatre @ The Lightship Theatre

Startled Cat! is a young new Bristol-based Theatre Company founded in 2019 by local Writer-Director Saito Hawkins and Producers Tom Davies & Josh Inoue. Their main goal is to get their audience inspired, disrupted and entertained, which they do marvellously with their first piece Checkpoint. It's what they call a "savage black satire" inspired by the historical Berlin Wall - it's a comedy, but it's dark.
