Friday Five Sentence Ficitioneers – Forgotten

18 January, 2013

Another mashup this week. Lillie’s prompt word is Forgotten, and here is Rochelle‘s prompt pic:

Enormous gratitude to them both.
Two prompts, one hundred words, five sentences, one story. All comments and criticisms welcome and encouraged.

 

Tarquin O’Toole was a prominent actor in the early twentieth century, often playing in three West End plays concurrently.

Today he is forgotten by all except the most conscientious and knowledgeable theatre historian, and very few of his effects still exist.

The crayons from his imaginative one-man-show of the life of Leonardo, for example, or the telephone from his self-penned “Call of Fate” which earned him an OBE from Queen Victoria.

The menorah also remains from his jewish re-imagining of Shakespeare’s Henry VIII, an ill-fated production which many say ended his career.

Shall we start the bidding at three pounds?

  1. I like this so very much. It was such a different take than what most of us wrote. It’s sad that the bidding started at only three pounds…

  2. Nice job w/ the ending! 🙂

  3. I enjoyed your story. Esp. the crayons from the life of Leonardo. Why have you not put your link on the link page, so more can read your story?
