Storyboard Text

  • Exposition
  • W.W Jacobs The Monkey's Paw
  • Conflict
  • Should we keep the monkey's paw or let it burn?
  • I am sorry, but Herbert got caught in the machinery.
  • Climax
  • Is he okay??
  • The night was cold and wet, but in the small parlour of Laburnum Villa the blinds were drawn and the fire burned brightly. Father and son were at chess, and the mother was knitting placidly by the fire.
  • Falling Action
  • I wish my son alive again
  • Stair creeks and weird noises occur
  • While the White family relax inside their home, a man comes up to their door and comes in, it is Sergeant Major-Morris. He takes out the monkey's paw and tells them about it. But as soon as he was finished, he decided to throw it in the fire pit and told the family if they anted to keep it. Mr White decided to take it out.
  • Resolution
  • I wish Herbert came back
  • the visitor is seen by Mrs. White outside the window and he comes in. He says that he comes from Maw and Meggins, where Herbert is currently working. Mrs.White is asking if anything happened to Herbert, and sadly, he visitor says that he has gotten hurt and cannot be with them anymore.
  • Theme
  • Mr and Mrs White were located down in the dim parlour, desperate to get back their son that died from the machinery. Mrs. White  is screaming at Mr White to wish for him back but he does not help, once she raises her voice he decides to go along.
  • WISH!!!
  • Weird noises come from above and Mrs. White believes that it could be Herbert, but she is not sure. Three were knocks on the door, and footsteps coming from the door. But Mrs. White wanted to open the door but she couldn't reach, and Mr. White was in need of the monkeys paw,but he luckily found it , and wished his last wish. 
  • I believe that this is the theme because they never believed that the Monkey paw would bring bad to their life, but they had to find out the hard way. 
  • Theme: Never take something for granted
