You like time travel? You like the Cold War? You like German stuff? Dann diese Theaterstück ist für du!
After many years in development, Watchlist is Lindsay's first full-length play. Watchlist juxtaposes Cold War-era Berlin with modern day America, exploring themes of surveillance, privacy, communication, and isolation in our current society. Through the eyes of two contemporary twenty-somethings who are transported back in time to opposite sides of the Berlin wall, Watchlist seeks to awaken audiences to the similarities between the most thorough surveillance state in history and the "greatest democracy" in the world. While rooted in a very real historical and modern political context, Watchlist is a time-traveling, fantastical take on the problems facing our society today. Watchlist challenges us to open our eyes to a world we forgot and a world we now ignore - with increasingly dangerous consequences.
Watchlist is looking for actors to fill the following roles:
Early 20s, male. A quick-tempered philosophy student.
Easy going. White.
Early 30s, female. A mistrustful woman. An accidental
dissident. Any ethnicity.
Early 30s, female. A passionate woman who is hurting.
Late 30s, male. A big-hearted man plagued by tragedy.
Late 30s, male. A Stasi officer. Any ethnicity.
Ageless. May be played by any person who has the
appropriate charisma, attitude, and mystique.
