Film Suggestion:

Eddie Murphy as Edgar the shape-changer in LEAR.  (I'm thinking back to the
Beverly Hill Cop movies where without electronic help he morphs from macho to
fey to _dignitas_ in a moment.)

Of course Lady Macbeth really fainted.  Her husband had just killed several
men, not just the king.  That wasn't a part of the plan.  How shocking to
discover the ease with which the man you love can kill.

Of course she didn't really faint.  She knew the Pandora's box she was opening.
 Her husband was still too weak to disseminate as well as she. Fainting is a
temporary diversion designed to distract the others from her husbands guilt.

After all, isn't this what makes drama so much fun?  Interpretations. Layers of
meaning.  Director's vision.  Actor's interpretation.  Author's voice.
