“What’s done cannot be undone.” (Macbeth Act V, Scene I) Macbeth, written by the brilliant Shakespeare, is a play of tragedy and of consequences. The opening act introduces three witches discussing their plans to confront Macbeth and reveal to him his destiny of being crowned King. Scene two focuses on the current King of Scotland, King Duncan, and introduces most of the main characters in the play. King Duncan asks of the status of the war with the Irish, specifically curious of the state of his son, and generals Macbeth and Banquo, are noted as heroic for their part in battle. Soon the witches approach Macbeth and prophesy that he is to be king and he tells his wife, Lady Macbeth, who is as much of a star in this play as Macbeth himself.
