King Alonso and his men, stranded together, wander the island in search of Ferdinand. Gonzalo tries to convince Alonso of Ferdinand’s survival. Ariel puts all the men asleep except for Antonio and Sebastian. Antonio takes this opportunity to convince Sebastian to kill King Alonso and Gonzalo so that Sebastian can take over throne of Naples.

Objective/SWBAT: Read, dramatize and summarize Act Two, scene 1

Overview: For this review activity you will be working in groups of four to create a tableau (non-moving, non-speaking, human sculpture) that represents the actions of the characters of the play in act 2.


  • Choose one group members’ character cards.
  • Shuffle the cards and have each group member blindly, randomly draw a card.
  • Each group member reads his/her line and chooses a pose that reflects the meaning of the line and the actions of the character on his/her card.

  • Each group will present their tableau and discuss their tableau with the class.

All the infections that the sun sucks up

From bogs, fens, flats, on Prosper fall and make him

By inchmeal a disease! His spirits hear me,

And yet I needs must curse. But they’ll nor pinch me I’ th’ mire,

Nor lead me like a firebrand in the dark

Out of my way, unless he bid ‘em. But

For every trifle are they set upon me,

Sometimes like apes, that mow and chatter at me

And after bite me; then like hedgehogs, which

Lie tumbling in my barefoot way and mount

Their pricks at my footfall. Sometime am I

All wound with adders, who with cloven tongues

Do hiss me into madness. Lo, now, lo!

Here comes a spirit of his, and to torment me

For bringing wood in slowly. I’ll fall flat.

Perchance he will not mind me.
