Act 1 Scene 3
The three witches appear on a Scottish Moore. They tell one another the devious things they are doing and/or planning until one witch says that Macbeth is coming. Macbeth and Banquo come onto the scene and aren’t pleased about the sight of the witches. The witches call to Macbeth in terms of his new title, and declare he will be king one day. Then address Banquo, and tell him that his children will soon take the throne.

Summary of Play
