Macbeth Banquet Scene your turn! due: Monday, Nov. 4 For this creative writing assignment, you get to decide how you would create the banquet scene (Act 3, Scene 4) if you were directing a movie of Macbeth. Reread ACT III SCENE 4 FROM YOUR TEXT. Then write at least five sentences on each of the following: Overall Concept: What is the overall idea, setting, time period, etc. of your film? (The film clips we just saw should give you some ideas) BE CREATIVE!! Wild West? Communist China? Under the sea? Setting of the Scene: What specifically would the banquet room look like? Describe it so that an artist could create the scenery necessary. EXTRA CREDIT: Create an illustration of the banquet room. Costumes: What would the major characters wear and look like? (Both setting & costumes should match your overall concept.) EXTRA CREDIT: Create an illustration of the costumes. Ghost: Describe the ghost in detail. Would the audience see it or would Macbeth just describe it in words as he imagines seeing it?

LADY MACBETH You lack the season of all natures, sleep. MACBETH I hear it by the way; but I will send: There's not a one of them but in his house I keep a servant fee'd. I will to-morrow, And betimes I will, to the weird sisters: More shall they speak; for now I am bent to know, By the worst means, the worst. For mine own good, All causes shall give way: I am in blood Stepp'd in so far that, should I wade no more, Returning were as tedious as go o'er: Strange things I have in head, that will to hand; Which must be acted ere they may be scann'd. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pHE6j2ovE7M LADY MACBETH You lack the season of all natures, sleep. MACBETH Come, we'll to sleep. My strange and self-abuse Is the initiate fear that wants hard use: We are yet but young in deed. Dialogue: The last part of this project is to take these final lines and reword them to fit your setting.

Song Summary #4 (II,iii-III,iv) Well you know it's going from fair to foul, When a falcon gets killed by an owl. And the days are dark, And the winds howl Across the Scottish moor. And Macbeth's still feeling rotten, Even though he's the King of Scotland Because the whole thing has now gotten To be something of a chore. And his wife says, it's a party, man, Sit back and drink some wine The whole point of this king thing is to have a real good time But Macbeth's just killed his friend And he's seeing ghosts again. And I just checked the page count, And we're almost at the end. Not much more to go! Oh Macbeth, Macbeth, Macduff could prove a threat, And Fleance ain't dead yet and you are certain he'll be back, But Macbeth, Macbeth, let's just take a big deep breath, There's bound to be more death, But let's relax and just take it step by step. http://thisismacbeth.com/movie/songs/index.shtml
