Ladies and gents, I have decided to introduce today’s work to you in script form.
Mr. Pedrech: Good morning, class!
Class: (with gusto) Good morning, Mr. Pedrech!
Inquisitive student: What are we doing today, Mr. Pedrech?
Mr. Pedrech: I am glad you asked. First, we will quickly review our work from yesterday; remember the bit about the characteristics of tragedy?
Overly excited student: Oh, boy, do I!
Mr. Pedrech: After we look at your responses, we will prepare for the worst dinner party ever.
Student Who Has Been To Some Bad Dinner Parties: I don’t know…I have been to some bad dinner parties.
Mr. Pedrech: Did those dinner parties have a crazy king, a couple of murderers, and a ghost with 20 gashes to his head?
Student Who Has Been To Some Bad Dinner Parties: Well, not at the same time, no.
Mr. Pedrech: Didn’t think so. First, let’s see how Macbeth and Lady Macbeth prepare for their guests, shall we?
