a non-profit, semi-professional theater, has been creating theatrical productions of high literary and artistic standards for over 87 years.
Trouble in Mind is an insightful, wickedly funny, and often heart-rending slice of theatrical life along the fault lines of the black/white divide. One critical commentary astutely sums it up: “With scathing wit and bold candor, Trouble in Mind stakes out territory where few playwrights,today or more than fifty years ago, have dared to tread.
The action takes place on the empty stage of a Broadway theater around 1957 where a group of black and white actors and their (white) director are rehearsing a “topical” inter-racial melodrama set in the rural deep South.
“[This play] is an important work that begs to be seen. It is truthfully written, balanced with loads of humor as it deals with head on with racism. …Put this on your ‘must see’ list.” Chicago Critic
