MLMM Sunday Writing Prompt 234 – Its All in the Title

This is a Fairytale With a Very Bad End but I think it’s 7 Years history will resonate with you. It started as An Unavoidable Encounter between the Ineffable wicked witch and the Shadow Puppet.

One night at The Scarlet Temple performance of Festering Roots in which the aforementioned puppet was playing the lead role, there was a disturbance. The wicked witch, being a selfish entity, suddenly stood up in the audience and started to promote her own play, Famished: An Unrelenting Silence. This play was from her real life experience as the “Hansen and Gretel” witch who lured innocents to her home in order to feed her uncontrollable appetite for children. The play was autobiographical but she couldn’t stir up much interest or publicity so she chose The Scarlet Temple performance to promote her awful story.

The Shadow Puppet, stopping in the middle of performing his own autobiographical play, I is an Illusion, decided the only way to continue was to make the best of the situation and started clapping. Of course this caused the wicked witch’s interruption to cease and her now Cracked Facade revealed she was not as evil as everyone thought, but a poor old, lonely woman with an unusual appetite.

  1. Oh my! What a fabulous use of the titles I especially loved the combo of Shadow Puppet and I is an Illusion and the choice for the plays title and the reference to the Hansel and Gretel witch, it is just very, very clever
