A Haunting in Cawdor

Mr. Seals, head of

our studies, and

I of course run the

theater program.

Make the most of your time here

and it will pass quickly.

Mr. Kosack will now give

you your orientation.

Thank you, Chuck.

[Charles] What, Brian?

I've never really acted before.

I'll chip in here,

fundraise or something,

I could maybe sell some weed.

It's kinda how I

came to be here.

I'll bet you're a fine actor.

Shit, you've been acting like a

fucking asshole for

a long time, right?

Unlike the courts, we don't do a

three strikes and

you're out around here.

One rule violation

and you're gone.

The judge will double your time.

You will be behind

bars until the

snow flies next

Christmas, any questions?


Seriously, I'm no actress,

so what am I supposed to do?

Well, you can address

me as Sir, little girl,

and when it comes

time for the play

you can stand in the back

and be a fucking tree.

I don't really care.

Meantime, you can

clean the shitters.

Now let me be perfectly clear.

I can't make you do anything

you don't want to do,

but I can make you wish you had.

Trust me.

Let's go!

(dramatic music)

Welcome to your new home

for the next three months.

By day, it's a working

scene shop for set building,

we got your paint

room, my tools which

will be locked up,

and by night you

got your sleeping quarters.

Big curtain on the

ceiling comes down

every night for

a little privacy.

Men over there,

women on this side.


It's gonna get

cold pretty soon,

you got any heaters

to keep it warm?

We got some space heaters

if it gets too cold.

Some barn fans

for some air flow.

Up at 6 AM for roll

call, calisthenics,

breakfast, and then

the fun begins.

Paintings, grounds striders,


set building, and

rehearsals for Macbeth.
