I tweeted about this while I was out on today's grocery run, but the Forum had to wait until I got home:
For the past few weeks I've been heavily immersed in writing a long piece in which a small cast is, for convoluted reasons beyond their control, more or less trapped in a house they can leave only occasionally and under very specific circumstances.
It's only now dawned on me that I've been writing a bottle show lockdown parable this whole time.
(N.B. "Bottle show" as in the genre-TV idea of stretching the budget by making episodes that only use the permanent sets and cast, without the expense of location shoots, new sets, or guest stars. Not the "unconvivial strangers forced to live together and monitored whilst they hate each other" faux-reality-game-show thing.)
