Storyboard Text

  • Kids Gather Stones
  • Gathering in the Square
  • "The Box"
  • Worn, to show its original wood color.
  • Sat on a stool in the middle of the square.
  • In the warm summer air on June 27th all the kids of the village gather sones in a pile to later throw the at the "chosen one". They still chat of school things as they labor.
  • Mrs Hutchinson and the Drawing.
  • The children, after putting together the pile of stones, they start to play.  However, they are called by their mothers and fathers, who want them to behave well for this nerve racking event.
  • Mrs Hutchinson is Chosen
  • The use of the black wooden box is introduced earlier in the story , saying that it was lost long ago and has never been recovered since. The talk of the box draws onto other previously remembered customs that had been forsaken along with the box. There is a new wooden box, and it is hidden so that no one will steal it, and it will not be lost.
  • Tessie is Stoned
  • Mrs Hutchinson is the character in the story that forgets that the drawing is to be on that day, and is almost late. She runs as fast as humanly possible, and gets there in time for the drawing. 
  • You're nearly late
  • Tessie Hutchinson tries to argue, but everyone is bloodthirsty and wants to stone her, including Mr. Summers. He tells her to "be a good sport" and accept her fate. She then begins to scream as the villagers close in on her with stones. 
  • She tries to run, but is surrounded in the middle of the square. The villagers run towards her to deliver her agonizing fate.  This is the ending, where it says, "and then they are upon her".
