1. Warm-up: Interpreting Banquo's haunting of Macbeth


a. Why do you think Macbeth is haunted by the ghost of Banquo, but not by the ghost of Duncan?

c. If you were directing the film and you wanted to evoke sympathy for Macbeth, how would you 
stage 3.4,  the scene in which Banquo’s ghost returns to haunt Macbeth? Things to think about…
would the audience get to see Banquo’s ghost?  What does it look like?  How would Macbeth 

d. How would your staging change if you wanted to distance him from the audience emotionally?
