Trouble in Mind
By Alice Childress  ||  Director to be announced
May 26 – June 19, 2022  ||  Kalita Humphreys Theater

 

This groundbreaking American comedy/drama, both written and set in the mid-1950s, tells the story of Wiletta Mayer, an African American actress cast in a supposedly “progressive” play about racism written by a white male author–which turns out to be anything but progressive. Trouble in Mind opened off-Broadway in 1955 and became the first play by a Black female playwright to be optioned for Broadway. But when Childress, the real-life playwright, refused to change the ending at the request of the white producers, the production was called off. Seven decades later, this nearly-lost classic is making a comeback at theaters across the country–including Broadway this fall–proving that this funny and moving play is a piece for our times.
