Act 4 scene 1'Witches Scene' (abridged)



First Witch

Thrice the brinded cat hath mew'd.


Second Witch

Thrice and once the hedge-pig whined.


Third Witch

Harpier cries "'Tis time, 'tis time."


First Witch

Round about the cauldron go;

In the poison'd entrails throw.

Toad, that under cold stone

Days and nights has thirty-one

Swelter'd venom sleeping got,

Boil thou first i' the charmed pot.


ALL

Double, double toil and trouble;

Fire burn, and cauldron bubble.


Second Witch

Fillet of a fenny snake,

Eye of newt and toe of frog,

Wool of bat and tongue of dog,

Adder's fork and blind-worm's sting,

Lizard's leg and howlet's wing,

For a charm of powerful trouble,

Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.


ALL

Double, double toil and trouble;

Fire burn and cauldron bubble.


Third Witch

Scale of dragon, tooth of wolf,

Witches' mummy, maw and gulf

Of the ravin'd salt-sea shark,

Root of hemlock digg'd i' the dark,

Liver of blaspheming Jew,

Gall of goat, and slips of yew

Sliver'd in the moon's eclipse,

Nose of Turk and Tartar's lips,

Finger of birth-strangled babe

Ditch-deliver'd by a drab,

Make the gruel thick and slab.

Add thereto a tiger's chaudron,

For the ingredients of our cauldron.


ALL

Double, double toil and trouble;

Fire burn and cauldron bubble.


Second Witch

Cool it with a baboon's blood,

Then the charm is firm and good.


Second Witch

By the pricking of my thumbs,

Something wicked this way comes.



MACBETH

How now, you secret, black, and midnight hags!

What is't you do?

        answer me

To what I ask you.


First Witch

Say, if thou'dst rather hear it from our mouths,

Or from our masters?


MACBETH :

Call 'em; let me see 'em.


First Witch

Pour in sow's blood, that hath eaten

Her nine farrow; grease that's sweaten

From the murderer's gibbet throw

Into the flame.


First Apparition

Macbeth! Macbeth! Macbeth! beware Macduff;

Beware the thane of Fife!


MACBETH

Thou hast harp'd my fear aright. But—


Second Apparition

Be bloody, bold, and resolute...

none of woman born

Shall harm Macbeth.


MACBETH

Then live, Macduff; what need I fear of thee?

But yet I'll make assurance double sure,

...thou shalt not live;


Third Apparition

Macbeth shall never vanquish'd be until

Great Birnam wood to high Dunsinane hill

Shall come against him.


MACBETH That will never be...Yet my heart Throbs to know one thing...shall Banquo's issue ever Reign in this kingdom?


ALL: Seek to know no more.  Workshop led by Reza Ben Gajra
