This storyboard does not have a description.
"The Count Claudio shall marry the daughter of Leonato. I am sick in displeasure to him... How canst thou cross this marriage?" (Shakespeare 2.2. 1-7).
Don John (left) is talking to Borachio (right) and is explaining that Claudio is going to marry Hero, Leonato's daughter. Don John is cruel and wants to mess up their marriage.
"I think I told your lordship a year since how much I am in the favor of Margaret, the waiting gentlewoman to Hero. I can, appoint her to look out at her lady’s chamber window... " (Shakespeare 2.2. 12-18).
Don John and Borochio (right) planned to have Margaret (left) and Borochio be looking out Hero's bedroom at night, with Margaret dressing up as Hero while Hero isn't there. Don John will bring Claudio and Don Pedro to the scene.
"They will scarcely believe this... Offer them instances, which shall bear no less likelihood than to see me at her chamber window, hear me call Margaret 'Hero,' hear Margaret term me 'Claudio," (Shakespeare 2.2.40-44).
Don John (left) took Claudio (middle) and Don Pedro (right) to see Borochio and "Hero", who is actually Margaret, in Hero's bedroom at night. They hope Claudio and Don Pedro think Hero is cheating, and will call off the wedding.
"...bring them to see this the very night before the intended wedding.. there shall appear such seeming truth of Hero’s disloyalty that jealousy shall be called assurance and all the preparation overthrown." (Shakespeare 2.2. 44-49).
