William Shakespeare’s Macbeth- Act 3, Scene 5.

Characters in order of appearance:

First Witch

Time: Unknown

The witches again meet at an open place, this time with Hecate, the goddess of witches, who sounds angry. Hecate lays into the weird sisters in a lengthy, rhyming soliloquy. She’s super irritated that they were meddling in the affairs of Macbeth without consulting her first, as she would’ve done a better job. She points out that Macbeth isn’t devoted to them but only to himself. But, fine, Hecate will clean up this mess. She tells them to all meet in the morning when Macbeth will come to know his destiny, whatever that means. Then there’s a  witch song and dance and they leave.
