Act 5, Scene 1, Actor’s Note

crying

In act 5, scene 1, Lady Macbeth begins to suffer the same problems as Macbeth. She thinks there is blood on her hands when there really isn’t and the doctor is worried because she constantly “rubs” her hands (V.i.25). She then frantically tries to wash the blood off but has no success. I imagine Lady Macbeth began to break down sobbing because she feels cursed.

Act 4, Scene 3, Special Effects

In act 4, scene 3, Macduff learns from Ross that Macbeth murdered his wife and children. I imagine the Macduff had broken down and cried in front of Malcolm. The intense crying and whimpering of Macduff signifies his love for his family. Also, it foreshadows the amount of anger that Macduff will unleash onto Macbeth for ruining his life.

Act 4, Scene 2, Special Effects

In act 4, scene 2, Lady Macduff is furious with Macduff’s “madness” and tells her son that his dad is dead (IV.ii.5). I imagine that Macduff and his son had a very strong bond and loved each other dearly. This is why his son refused to believe that Macduff was dead. As a result of Lady Macduff’s expression of Macduff’s death, I believe that her son screamed “no, no, NO, HELL NO!!!” because he did not want to believe it. In his world, Macduff was like superman.

cauldron

In act 4, scene 1, the witches “round about the cauldron” in order to prepare a potion (IV.i.4). I imagine that the cauldron is a glowing orange color from all the different ingredients being thrown into it. The witches throw in “wool of bat, and tongue of dog.” (IV.i.15) Also, I believe the scent of the mixture coming from the cauldron is what gives the witches the power to tell prophecies.

beer

During act 3, scene 6, Lennox meets with another lord in Scotland. I imagine that they are close friends and share a beer that night. When consuming alcohol, people generally say a lot of things without knowing they are doing so. Thus, I believe this is why Lennox spoke so rebellious of the king with a person of high-ranking. The beer could also explain Lennox’s unpredictable actions in the future.

Act 3, Scene 5, Costume

I imagine that the three witches in act 3, scene 5 wear the three dresses that are shown above. The dark colors of their dresses represent their “spiteful and wrathful” actions (III.v.12). Thus, expressing their mischievous and mysterious personalities. Also, these dark colors could represent the environment in which the witches incorporate themselves. Instead of being in bright shiny areas, one can infer that they like to be in dark places.

This is a scene of Joey Tribianni from the T.V. show Friends. I imagine Joey’s facial expression in the episode is the exact same as Macbeth’s when he sees the ghost of Banquo sitting in his chair. This is another occasion where Macbeth finds himself losing his mind from all sins he had committed. This occurence of encountering Banquo’s ghost haunting Macbeth could foreshadow Macbeth’s future as king being haunted with the people that he killed.
