Modernized Macbeth Creative Writing Examples
Scene: Act 5, Scene 6-8
a. Malcolm - Badr
b. Macduff - Irfan
c. Siward - Tarek
We have chosen to interpret the Act 5, Scenes 6 to 8 of William Shakespeare’s Tragedy of Macbeth. These scenes portray how stand out to lead his soldiers towards the castle. Shakespeare provided a remarkable way of creating Malcolm’s character especially when he announced that Young Siward and Siward are the ones who will lead the first battle. Scene 7 on the other hand, portrays how Macbeth waited on the battlefield in order to defend his castle. Macbeth was eager to defend his territory that he was able to kill Young Siward. Towards the end of the battle, Macduff entered the scene alone while shouting a challenge to Macbeth. Macduff was characterized as an eager man that aims to avenge the death children as well as his wife. As Macduff was about to exist, he asked Fortune’s help to find Macbeth. The setting will be set to a Wild West theme to establish a combat mood. The props that we will be using are sticks for Scene 6, sword and chair for Scene 7, and another sword and a model of a head for Scene 8. These will help us in portraying the characters and their roles for each scene.
Scene 6: Wild West Song. Enter Malcolm, Siward, Macduff, their army, with boughs.
We’re all getting closer y’all. Y’all remove the sticks y'all. Show your faces and show your body. Uncle, get your midget son to go fight I say. While Sheriff Macduff and I will work the plans out base on our thinking y'all.
Hope for the best y’all. If we see the Hill Billy’s powerhouse at night, Let us get harmed if we lost the war.
Let y’all the banjos talk; give them sounds that symbolize road kill and grim reminder.

Enter, with Drum and Colors, Malcolm, Siward, Ross,
Thanes, and Soldiers.
MALCOLM: Darn it. I hoped my amigos survived the conflict.
SIWARD: Another one bites the dust in combat. But from the looks of our comrades, we barely lost any men.
MALCOLM: Where the heck is Sherif Macduff and your child?
ROSS: Sherif, your child gave the soldier death.
His life spam reached long enough to become a man and showed his fighting spirit like a sheriff that just perished
SIWARD: Is he roadkill?
ROSS: Yep and just disappeared from the field. Sadness in you is not as much of his price, it would just build up and won’t stop.
SIWARD: Is he hurt?
ROSS: Yep on his sensitive spot.
SIWARD: The great one’s sheriff is here!
If I had babies to raise like my hair, none of them would have great esteem.
And that's that.
MALCOLM: His bravery is better than the sadness, and I will cry for his brave deed.
SIWARD: He is worth more than that.
His death settled the dispute in piece.
Now God protects him and give him peace with his family.
Enter Macduff with Macbeth’s head.
MACDUFF: Hooray for the Sherif! You are the new Sheriff in town.
Macbeth head is now roadkill. There is no longer destruction y’all.
The Sheriff title belongs to you and knows how you feel.

Now thank y’all for you wondrous gifts to gain back the land and all of you shall see be become the new roughest tootin cowboy around.
Based on my observation, our group was able to come up with what a good outcome for this project. Every member of our group worked diligently in order to integrate our ideas. Thus, we made the scripts entertaining, yet informative. We even had our meeting during the break so that we can for this project accordingly. Irfan deserves to get 90 because of the effort and the way his part was delivered. Even though there were minor lapses, he was aware of the scene’s story line. On the other hand, Tarek deserves to get 85 because he worked less than Irfan, but the outcome of his work is still satisfactory. He was also supportive of the ideas being presented during our meeting. As for me, I believe I deserve to get a 90 because of the extensive work that I have contributed for the group. In general, I have learned a lot on this project and hoping to have similar works in the future.
