ACT FOUR SCENE TWO

(Macduff’s castle, in Fife. Enter Lady Macduff, a boy (Lady Macduff’s son) and Ross) Lady Macduff: Why has my husband gone and left us here, alone?

Ross: You must be patient, madam.

Lady Macduff: (Angrily) Patient? He was not. Macduff is not a traitor. But leaving us has made him look like one.

Ross: He must have had good reason.

Lady Macduff: Good reason? To leave his wife? His children? To leave his castle? Everything he owns? He does not love us. Even birds protect their young. My husband is a coward and a fool. No. His leaving is against all reason.

Ross: My dearest madam, please do calm yourself. I know Macduff is good - wise, brave and well-informed. I dare not tell you more. Scotland is now full of fears and lies. Men are afraid, but don’t know what they fear. Now I must go.

(Turns to speak to Lady Macduff’s son)

I’ll soon be here again. Let’s hope that things get better. Farewell, dear child, and may God protect you.

Lady Macduff: He had a father, but that father’s gone.

Ross: If I stay longer, we all shall be in trouble. Farewell.

(Exit Ross)

Lady Macduff: (To her son) So, my son, your father’s dead. How will you live now?

Boy: As birds do, Mother.

Lady Macduff: What do you mean? By eating worms?

Boy: I’ll pick up what I can, as they do, Mother.

Lady Macduff: Poor bird! You must not be afraid. You won’t be caught.

Boy: That’s true. No one tries to catch a little bird. My father is not dead, although you say so.

Lady Macduff: Yes, he is dead. How will you get on without a father?

Boy: And how will you get on without a husband?

Lady Macduff: Oh, I shall find another, soon enough.

Boy: Was my father a traitor, Mother?

Lady Macduff: Yes, he was.

Boy: What is a traitor?

Lady Macduff: Well, someone who swears, and lies.

Boy: And are they all traitors… the people who do that?

Lady Macduff: Yes, they are, and they must be hanged.

Boy: Who must hang them?

Lady Macduff: Well, the honest men.

Boy: Then the liars and swearers are fools, for there are enough of them to attack and hang the honest men.

Lady Macduff: Now God help you, poor youngster. But how will you get on without a father?

Boy: If he was dead, you’d cry for him. As you don’t cry, it’s a good sign - that I’ll soon have a new father!

Lady Macduff: Poor little boy! How cleverly you talk!

(Enter messenger)

Messenger: God bless you, madam! I know who you are, although you don’t know me. Take my advice, there is much danger here. This castle is not safe, so leave at once. I am frightening you, but I must do it. Go, with your children, and Heaven help you all!

(Exit messenger)

Lady Macduff: Where should I go? I’ve done no harm. But that won’t save me now.

(Enter murderers)

Who are you?

1st Murderer: Where is your husband?

Lady Macduff: Nowhere, I hope, where men like you can find him.

1st Murderer: Macduff is a traitor.

Boy: My father’s not a traitor, wicked man!

1st Murderer: Wicked, am I? Then you’ll die too!

(Attacks the boy with a dagger)

Boy: He has killed me, Mother! Run away!

(Exit Lady Macduff, crying ‘Murder, murder!’)
