Storyboard Text

  • Act One: Scene One
  • When shall we three meet again? 
  • Fair is foul and foul is fair, that we must remember throughout this affair.  
  • When the battle's lost and won, we shall meet Macbeth upon the heath. 
  • Act One: Scene Two
  • Doubtful it stood, the outcome of the battle. Fate favored the villanous rebel Macdonwald. But all was powerless in front of Macbeth, who with his brandished steel disdained fortune and unseamed the villain from nave to chops.
  • What bloody man is that? Seems like he can still report!
  •  O valiant cousin! Worthy Gentlemen!
  • Act One: Scene Two
  • Unfortunately, success against Macdonwald created new problems. The Norweyan lord, surveying vantage, with furbished arms and new supplies of men began a fresh assault. But our brave generals redoubled strokes upon the foe.
  • So well thy words become thee as thy wounds, they smack of honor both! 
  • The Weird Sisters observe the War from afar and set the tone for the play. From the onset they distinguish between appearance and reality.
  • Act One: Scene Two
  • The worthy Thane of Ross! From whence camest thou?
  • At a camp near Forres, a bleeding Sergeant informs King Duncan of Macbeth's incredible bravery in face of danger. According to the Sergeant, fearing nothing, Macbeth singlehandedly defeated Macdonwald. 
  • Act One: Scene Three
  • The Weird Sisters, hand in hand, thus do go about, thrice to thine, and thrice to mine, and thrice again to make up nine. The charm's wound up!
  • The sergeant further explains Macbeth's bravery on the battlefield and tells the King how him and Banquo defeated the Norweyan lord. 
  • Act One: Scene Three
  • All hail, Macbeth, hail to thee! Thane of Cawdor, Thane of Glamis, that shalt be King hereafter!
  • And you Banquo, thou shalt get kings, though thou be none.
  • The King hears of the Thane of Cawdor's betrayal and is outraged. He orders the Thane dead and bestows the Thane's title on Macbeth; the King believes Macbeth to be one of his most loyal subjects and thus rewards him for it. Loyalty is an attribute he values. 
  • From Fife where the Norweyan banners flout the sky. Norway himself, assisted by that most disloyal traitor, the Thane of Cawdor. Till Bellona's bridegroom curbed his lavish spirit and victory fell on us!
  • Great happiness! No more that Thane of Cawdor shall deceive. Go pronounce his death and with his former title greet Macbeth.To find the mind’s construction in the face: He was a gentleman on whom I built an absolute trust
  • The Weird Sisters meet after the battle and display the extent of their power. It is apparent that they can threaten anyone who gets in their way.
  • Where hast thou been sister?
  • A sailor's wife hath crossed me gravely, but her husband I shall bewitch. I shall drain him as dry as hay and he shall sleep neither night nor day. He shall live a man forbid. 
  • In one of the most pivotal scenes of the play, the Weird Sisters greet Macbeth and Banquo with their prophecy: Macbeth shall be the future King and Banquo father of a line of Kings. It is important to note they use nouns not verbs. They tell Macbeth the titles he may acquire but not the actions needed to attain the titles. Macbeth wishes to know more, displaying that he is not immune to the flaws of human nature and that he craves power.
  • Stay you imperfect speakers, tell me more! How can I be the Thane of Cawdor when he still lives? And to be King stands not within the prospect of belief. Speak, I charge you.
