Directionless Basil is smitten by the strident Delia, but Delia is more than she appears to be. As Basil
begins to see the world through her eyes, he realises that when it comes to environmental activism,
there are those who talk the talk and those who walk the walk. Hunted by mysterious government agents and judged by family and friends, Basil and Delia balance new love against the hard decisions we can no longer defer both as individuals and as members of a global

Written by award-winning playwright and screenwriter, Alex Vickery-Howe, Watchlist speaks to an emerging generation of environmental activists while exploring surveillance culture, the

Copies of the playscript have flown off the physical and digital shelves, already selling out from Currency Press.
