And so we draw to the close. There's a bit at the start of the scene where Team Malcolm is taking the roster and find that Young Siward is dead. Siward takes the death well because all the wounds were on the front of the body, which means that he faced his death. (Worf as Siward? Maybe.)

But then Macduff comes on stage with the head of Macbeth and things get even more jovial. By having him address Malcolm as king we have a clear acknowledgement of the worthiness of the new king by the guy who beat the previous one - so things should be safe now.

And Malcolm addresses the company in a pretty brief speech, and all is done.

All that remains is the curtain call. Or is that all?

It also depends on whether some actor got killed backstage! :D If there's anything believable, it's not some of the CSI shows these days! :D

As to the play itself, it depends on whether the theater owners were planning on doing an entire performance, or just the interesting bits! :D

I prefer to think of it as the "essential bits" rather than just the interesting bits. It would take a heck of a long time to do the complete text!

Backstage, you say? How decidedly peculiar...

Well, would you plan to have someone murdered onstage in front of an audience full of witnesses? I'm fairly certain that's not the way you do it if you're planning on getting away with it, which, incidentally, is another thing murderers are often portrayed as doing on murder mystery and sometimes CSI shows as well! :D

I'll tune in next week to find out what's going on backstage, if anything! :D

Well, I wouldn't plan that one now...
