Storyboard Text

  • The Myth of Pyramus and Thisbe by Hayden Pounders
  • Oh Thisbe I wish our parents let us be together.
  • Me as well Pyramus, I would do anything to be with you.
  • Pyramus and Thisbe are lovers in Babylon who are in connected houses, forbidden by their parents to get married, because of their parents' rivalry.
  • We shall be married one day, I'll make sure of it, no matter what our parents say.
  • Through a crack in a wall, they whisper their love for each other. They ask each other to meet near Ninus' tomb under a mulberry tree and state their love for each other.
  • I love you so much Thisbe, we must meet somewhere so that we can be together.
  • Yes and we can meet under the mulberry tree near Ninus' tomb!!!
  • Thisbe arrives first, but upon seeing a lioness with a mouth bloody from a recent kill, she flees, leaving behind her veil.
  • Oh Pyramus where are you?!?! This lioness will kill me I cannot stay here!!
  • When Pyramus arrives he is frightened at the sight of Thisbe's veil, Pyramus kills himself, thinking the beast killed her. He falls on his sword in Babylonian fashion, splashing blood on the white mulberry leaves
  • Oh no!! Thisbe has died, I cannot live without her, I must end my own life.
  • Pyramus's blood stains the leaves, when Thisbe returns to his dead body she kills herself with the same sword. The gods see this and forever change the color of mulberry fruits in honor their forbidden love.
  • Oh miserable me!! I cannot live without you Pyramus, I must take my own life since you have taken yours.
