Brief: Choose a random phobia from a list, and use it to inspire a play. I chose Eisoptrophobia: the fear of mirrors or of looking into them, or of seeing your reflection.

Excerpt:

QUEEN:                     My hunter. I had him, in my home, in my bed.

THERAPIST:              And the mirrors?

QUEEN:                     Their voices were quiet for a time. And then they were not.

THERAPIST:              When did the mirrors start speaking to you again?

QUEEN:                     Jeremiah mentioned that the girl was becoming a beautiful woman.

THERAPIST:              And?

QUEEN:                     He said she was the only person more beautiful than me.
