In Lauren Gunderson’s Toil and Trouble, underemployed friends Adam, Matt and Beth are desperate to beat the recession any way they can–like combining forces to take over a small island in South America. But when a fortune cookie tells Matt that he will rule and Beth gets a little too handy with a dagger, plans go awry. This hilarious adaptation of Shakespeare’s Macbeth pits friend against friend, ambition against fate, pet-sitting against miniature vicuna mogul-dom.
