Nictzin Dyalhis

In Nictzin Dyalhis we hear the sound of the ocean as spotlights come up on a man, Nictzin, and a woman, Harriet, seated on an otherwise dark stage.  She tells him he goes out walking every night waiting for a woman that he dreams about.  He says she needs to calm down or they’ll come and give her a sedative.  She says his vision is clouded by lust, that he is half Welsh and half Guatemalan with an Aztec first name, and a writer of crazy, pathetic Weird Tales.  She says she is trapped in this horrible place with all these crazy people so he could be with the woman.  She says his name again and again and he thinks the woman is calling him from the ocean.  Harriet says that all the while it was her.
