Two ambitious young men and one badass lady fight the recession with dictatorial dreams and sketchy plans. Adam, Matt, and Beth are Bay Area 30-somethings with too much college education (and not enough employment) for their own good. Adam has a plethora of ideas, but none seem viable and all of them involve robots. But when three fortune cookies, delivered with their takeout, change the course of their lives, the trio settles for taking over a small island nation off the coast of Chile populated by… miniature vicuña? Seriously. Alliances form, friendships are tested, and murders are attempted.  Did we mention this is a comedy?

Toil and Trouble throws baseball, angel investors, hipsters, Wikipedia, fortune cookies, hypothetical sex, and violence into one cauldron, creating a potion that’s sure to have you laughing, and maybe considering your own coup d’état. This twist on Shakespeare’s Macbeth shows that hubris, greed, power, and passion still rule the world. Something wicked funny this way comes.
