Trouble in Mind
Newman Auditorium, Emeritus Hall
Written early in the Civil Rights era by one of the first African-American women to gain national prominence as a playwright, this nearly forgotten theatrical gem shines once more. Delightful and compelling, Alice Childress's comedy-drama takes place as rehearsals begin for a controversial new Broadway play. At its heart is a spirited actress who begins to question both her stereotypical casting and the hidden prejudices held by those with whom she works.
