Trouble in Mind by Alice Childress

November 3 - November 13

Proscenium Theatre

Written in 1956, Alice Childress‘s pioneering play, Trouble in Mind, shined a light on the lack of recognition, representation, and opportunities for Black theatre artists. During a turbulent rehearsal week for a new Broadway play, leading lady Willetta Mayer resists the rampant racism of the entertainment industry. No less relevant today, the play is a brisk, entertaining drama told with humor and pathos.

Directed by Danielle A. Drakes.
