Help us make up a weird disease name for our play...
We’re doing a play and we need a name. It’s basically a play about a woman who is sick in bed for an extended period of time, and the play interweaves between her reality and the world of her imagination, memories, etc.
Our production is partially inspired by Susan Sontag’s play “Alice in Bed”, and we’d love to somehow pay homage to her by referencing her play in the name. Sontag’s play was about a young woman, Alice James (sister of Henry James) who was depressive, ended up in bed, and eventually died of breast cancer.
I came up with the idea of referencing “Alice” but some kind of Latin stem to make it sound like a disease. We’ve been coming up with names like “Alice Dreamiasis” but I am sure that the fluther collective can come up with something better..
It just needs to sound like a disease, and it’ll be great if somehow it referenced either Alice, bed, imagination, will power, illness… in a way that is not too obscure. It’ll be performed in Hong Kong so people’s English here are not too erudite!
Any one familar with Latin/Greek stems out there? Or creative minds that want to give it a shot?
p.s. Some disease stems here:
