In the Great Expanse of Space there is nothing to see but More, More, More

Working on a new play called In the Great Expanse of Space there is nothing to see but More, More, More. It's right now, in five parts.

Here's a tiny bit of it:

"Osteoporosis. Brain hemorrhage. Nausea. Kleptomania. Trichotillomania. Psychosomatic. Sonar. Shrapnel just behind the eye. Kidney stones. Choking hazard. Still life. “It” girl. Bulimia. Crusty morning eyes. Acid Reflux. Wasting disease. Malaria. Athlete’s Foot. Freckles. Forgone Conclusions. Contusions. Lesions. Wetworks. Carpet cleaners. Carcinogens. Iron. Lead. Lycanthrope. Consumption. Tuberculosis. Platelets. Hemoglobin. Hobgoblin. Everlasting Gobstoppers. Heart Attack. Barbed wire. Knuckle sandwich. Off-kilter. Cypress. Eye jelly. Cortex. Corporate standards. Miscellanea. Inkwell. Bottoms up. Blood work. Stiff joints. Gelatin. Deafness. Barbiturates. Melatonin. Marrow."

I meant to mention this when I first saw it-- "Lycanthrope" would be the noun, like, "The Lycanthrope attacks you with his claws!"

But the affliction, to fit the list of conditions and diseases, would be the curse of "Lycanthropy".

I... I never threw 20-sided dice as a child. You have no proof!

I've convinced no one.

I would like your readers to know I am available for the very limited dramaturgy of things that could be found in The Monster Manual.

That should make you feel...proud. Very proud.
