Blinn-Bryan Theatre Arts to host special encore performances of ‘Toil and Trouble’
Performances will take place Nov. 7-8 in the Bryan Campus Student Center

Following two sold-out performances last week, the Blinn College-Bryan Campus Theatre Arts Program will host special encore performances of “Toil and Trouble” on Thursday and Friday, Nov. 7 and 8, at the Bryan Campus Student Center.
The performances, which take place at 7:30 p.m. in Room F-120, will replace the previously scheduled, “Life of Galileo.”
Tickets are $5 for students and $10 for the general public. All theatre performances are open seating. Tickets can be purchased at www.blinn.edu/boxoffice/bryan. For questions regarding ticket reservations, contact the Box Office at 979-209-8100 or bryanboxoffice@blinn.edu. Tickets also will be available at the door.
A black comedy with clever wit, “Toil and Trouble” pits friend against friend, ambition against fate, and pet sitting against miniature mogul-dom. The play revolves around three underemployed friends, Adam, Matt, and Beth, who are desperate to beat the recession by any means necessary. The three combine forces to take over a small island in South America, but plans go awry when a fortune cookie message tells Matt that he will rule and Beth gets a little careless with a dagger. Audiences should note that the play contains adult language and themes.
Following both performances, attendees are encouraged to stay for a brief “Talkback” session featuring a discussion with the cast and production team who will invite the audience to ask questions and delve into the parallels between this modern adaptation and the Bard’s original text.
“This contemporary adaptation of ‘Macbeth’ is shrouded in dark humor and introduces the audience to Shakespeare in a whole new way,” Blinn-Bryan Theatre Director Greg Wise said. “Tragedy turns to comedy in this timely production that showcases our students’ talent and delivers an evening of laughs.”
“Toil and Trouble” will be Blinn-Bryan’s entry into the Kennedy Center for American College Theatre Festival.
