Storyboard Description

The Doctor and Gentle women waited for two nights for what the gentlewomen claims to be Lady Macbeth walking around in her sleep mumbling to herself. The first two nights they weren't so lucky in catching her. But on the third night they heard something so shocking utter from her lips. Guilt Perhaps is overwhelming her?

Storyboard Text

  • That, sir, which I will not report after her.
  • The Gentlewomen tells the doctor about Lady Macbeth getting up in the middle of the night sleepwalking. The doctor decides to see for himself but it has been two nights already and there has been no sign of what the Gentlewomen speaks about.
  • This disease is beyond my practice. Yet I have known those which have walked in their sleep who have died holily in their beds.
  • You may to me, and ’tis most meet you should.
  • Neither to you nor any one, having no witness to confirm my speech. (She spots lady Macbeth who is holding a candle Lo you, here she comes. This is her very guise; and, upon my life, fast asleep. Observe her, stand close.
  • To bed, to bed. There’s knocking at the gate. Come, come, come, come. Give me your hand. What’s done cannot be undone.—To bed, to bed, to bed!
  • Out, damned spot! Out, I say!—One, two. Why, then, ’tis time to do ’t. Hell is murky!—Fie, my lord, fie! A soldier, and afeard? What need we fear who knows it, when none can call our power to account?—Yet who would have thought the old man to have had so much blood in him.
  • As they watch lady Macbeth the Doctor notice a candle in her hand and her eyes wide open. She then said something that shook him.
  • A great perturbation in nature, to receive at once the benefit of sleep, and do the line effects of watching. In this slumbery agitation, besides her walking and other actual performances, what, at any time, have you heard her say?
  • The thane of Fife had a wife. Where is she now?—What, will these hands ne'er be clean?—No more o' that, my lord, no more o' that. You mar all with this starting.
  • Do you mark that?
  • I still have the smell of blood on my hand. All the perfumes of Arabia couldn’t make my little hand smell better. Oh, oh, oh!
  • Wash your hands. Put on your nightgown. Look not so pale.—I tell you yet again, Banquo’s buried; he cannot come out on ’s grave.
  • After hearing bits of what she said the gentlewomen and doctor concluded that she said something she wasn't suppose too. But she still had more to say.
  • Will she go now to bed?
  • Yes, right away.
  • Good night, good doctor.
  • END
  • Foul whisp'rings are abroad. Unnatural deeds Do breed unnatural troubles. Infected minds To their deaf pillows will discharge their secrets. More needs she the divine than the physician. God, God forgive us all! Look after her,Remove from her the means of all annoyance, And still keep eyes upon her. So, good night. My mind she has mated, and amazed my sight. I think, but dare not speak.
