i see it now, act 1 is set in brooklyn and act 2 in .....
..... Newark, New Jersey, on the banks of the lower Passaic River, which everyone knows is contaminated with hazardous substances including dioxin, PCBs, DDT, heavy metals and polyaromatic hydrocarbons, which render a heavy, ominous haze to the atmosphere. Mercifully for Hilarion, he dies the instant he hits the water (making the cement shoes totally unnecessary).
Gee, I better move quick!
Living in horrible Newark, NJ, I may start to glow in the dark.
Folks, my neighborhood, in Newark, has been granted Historical Landmark status
for it's beautifully perserved early 20th Century houses. And it is backed by Branchbrook Park, designed by the the guy who designed Central Park in NYC.
It's a much smaller prototype.
The park also sort of competes with DC on the Spring Japanese cherry blossom
displays. While it doesn't approach DC in the number of trees, it does have more varieties, so the display lasts longer than in DC. So we are even sort of famous here.
If Hillarion gets tossed into Forest Hill, he might even want to stay. It';s not exactly a fate worse than death.
Look, I know the whole scenario is just a whimsical thing and isn't serious (I hope)
but getting where I live picked on all the time gets old.
