    Trouble Puppet Theater Company presents Toil and Trouble, an adaptation of Shakespeare's Macbeth for puppet theater—an elegantly brutal play brought to life (and death) through puppetry, complete with witches, ghosts, and bloody skullduggery. Watch Macbeth and Lady Macbeth achieve dazzling ambitions, overreach, and fall into hells of their own making.

    Adapted and directed by Artistic Director Connor Hopkins (winner of B. Iden Payne Awards for Outstanding Direction of a Drama for The Jungle AND for Frankenstein as well as Outstanding Original Script for The Jungle and The Austin Examiner's Best New Play Written by an Austinite for The Jungle), Toil and Trouble will feature music by Graham Reynolds, lighting by Stephen Pruitt, sound/media design by Buzz Moran, Chris Owen, and K. Eliot Haynes: what CultureMap calls "some of Austin's best creative minds at play."

    Featuring performances by Caroline Reck, Zac Crofford, Zeb West, Jose Villarreal, Katy Horan, Gricelda Silva, Ellie McBride, and Rocky Hopson.
