Checkpoint – a play by Martin Cohen

The play is based in part on Homer’s Iliad, and involves the Middle East conflict between
the Israeli and the Palestinian people. Although there is ample history presented in the script,
this play is not about the wars in that region, but rather shows the humanity of two opposing
families and how the daily conflict of war and occupation has torn apart Israeli and Palestinian
family life.

The play will be presented beginning June, 19th, 2018, for three weekends (Thursday
through Sunday) at the Richard E. Wildish Theater.
