In the street, but they can sleep instead. They

In Much Ado About Nothing by William Shakespeare, I performed the role of the George Seacole in Scene 3.3. George Seacole was just given the task as the new watchmen by dogberry. Seacole doesn’t portray much significance to the play, but is one of the discoverers of Don John’s plot to frame Hero at her wedding.  Dogberry and Verges interviewed George seacole and assigned him to be the new addition to the watch. His objective was to keep the streets of Messina safe and lookout for any suspicious activity during the night. He seems to be more knowledgeable and alert than Dogberry and Verges.Dogberry, the head constable, and Verges, his deputy, command and govern them. Dogberry and Verges are both good men and take their jobs very seriously, but they are also very goofy. Dogberry mastered malapropisms, always getting his words mixed with the opposite definition.The watch are very alert, but not very effective at apprehending crime. As Dogberry gives his orders to his men, it becomes clear that the Watch aren’t given much work or ordered to do very little. For example, when asked how the men should react when a person refuse to stop in the name of Don Pedro’s, Dogberry replies with, “Why then take no note of him, but let him go, and presently call the rest of the watch together, and thank God you are rid of a knave” (3.3. 25–27). Basically, the watchmen were ordered to send drunk people home and sleep their drunkenness off. If the drunks won’t listen, they were ordered to totally ignore them and avoid any ruckus in the streets. They themselves are not allowed to make too much noise in the street, but they can sleep instead. They are advised not to pursue thieves, because it isn’t good for honest men to have too much to do with dishonest ones because it may harm their reputation. They also were told to wake up the nurses of crying children, unless the nurses ignore them, in that case they should just let the child cry until the nurse wakes up instead. In short, they can do whatever they desire and don’t have to do anything at all, as long as they are careful not to let the people steal their weaponsDogberry gives his men a final order; to be extra alert near the residence of Leonato, because Leonato’s daughter, Hero, is to be married the very next day, and the house is filled with a lot commotion and chaos. After the depart of dogberry and verges, the men they have left behind sit down quietly on a bench and prepare to go to sleep. Two minutes into their break, the watchmen get interrupted by the drunk associates of Don John: Borachio and Conrad. The watchmen quickly launch from their positions and hide behind pillars at the gate of the House of Leonato’s. Borachio, who is completely unaware that the watchmen are in their presence, Informs Conrad about what has gone down that night. Being a key figure on the plan he made with Don John, Borachio made love to Margaret, Hero’s maid and Borachio’s mistress, at the window of Hero’s room, with Margaret dressed in Hero’s nightgown. Don Pedro and Claudio, who were hiding close by with Don John, witnessed the entire encounter and now have been completely convinced that Hero has been unloyal to Claudio. Claudio, feeling heartbroken and enraged, has vowed to take action upon Hero by publicly shaming her at her wedding ceremony the next day. The watchmen, who have quiet and listened to borachio’s confession, Took action and now revealed themselves as the watch and arrested Borachio and Conrade for their treachery. They drag them away to Dogberry and Verges for questioning to sextons chambers.
