“All hail Macbeth … Thane of Cawdor … King of Scotland.”
What a great morning of drama to hook ourselves into the story of Macbeth. Macbeth and his best friend, Banquo, greet each other after a bloody battle when suddenly, in the distance, they come across three hideous witches who proclaim their three prophecies….
We put ourselves in the shoes of: Macbeth, meeting our friend Banquo after the hard fought battle, of the two soldiers as they came across the witches (dare they believe what the old hags have to say?) … and of the three hideous witches as they greeted Macbeth …. “All hail Macbeth, Thane of Cawdor,” croaked the first hag.
And then there’s Lady Macbeth …. full of wickedness, coldblooded, ambitious, controlling, mad …
We are well and truly hooked. Bring on the next part of the story.
