The Story So Far: Three witches (or "Weird Sisters", if you want to be politically correct about it) have told Macbeth that he is going to be king. Macbeth tells his wife this, and they decide to be all proactive about this and kill the current king, Duncan. Because why not?
The dagger speech is one of the most famous speeches from Macbeth. I've assembled a video compilation of some of the more prominent filmed versions of it.
Also, in case you missed it, yesterday I put out a call for people to submit videos of themselves reciting a line or two from the Crispin's Day speech from Henry V, as part of my 600th anniversary of the Battle of Agincourt special. The response has been really great. I've assigned all the lines already, but since so many people want to be involved, I'm assigning them all a second time, because the more the merrier. So, if you'd like to be involved, e-mail me at goodticklebrain AT gmail DOT com and I'll give you a line!
