Macbeth – Act 1, Scene 3 Summary

Act 1 Scene 3:

Characters: Witch 1, Witch 2, Witch 3, Macbeth, Banquo, Rosse, Angus

Location: A heath

Events: The Witches deliver the news to Macbeth that he is Thane of Cawdor and will be King later on. They also tell Banquo (Macbeth’s Bestie) that his child will become King this is a problem because if Macbeth is king and Banquo child will be a king as well, then Banquo’s child will dethrone Macbeth. Macbeth discovers that is actually Thane of Cawdor by Rosse and Angus, giving truth to the Witches statement. Macbeth and Banquo decide to see the King (Duncan).
