Flash Fiction Friday # 6

Here we are again, another Friday, another FFF....Hope you'll enjoy it!




Henry sat in his director’s chair with contempt; his gay version of “Romeo and Juliet” was a big hit (in spite of the mediocrity of the actors) and he was now rehearsing the French Revolution, especially Marat murder, still from a gay point of view.
He looked at the actors who seemed to be little more professionals than the ones in the other play. He chose them carefully this time. They weren’t just pretty faces (and perfect bodies), but they could actually act! Miracles happen!
He sat more comfortably in his chair and said in a strong voice: “Aaaand Action”



For those of you who don't know who Jean Paul Marat, click on his name and you'll find out about him (yes I know, french history is very complicated!!);
And here is a famous painting representing Marat murder


Don't forget to check the 100 words of the other participants. You'll find the links here:

  1. Loved it. I wouldn't have known to go with film. I wouldn't have even thought about it. It still amazes me how differently we all see the same picture. Well done!
