Print Room at the Coronet welcomes the London transfer of Alice Childress' Trouble in Mind. Following a critically acclaimed run at in the Ustinov Studio in November 2016, Trouble in Mind runs in Notting Hill now through 14th October 2017, directed by Laurence Boswell with Tanya Moodie in the lead role of Wiletta Mayer. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!

Pip Donaghy returns to the role of Henry alongside Geoff Leesley as Bill. Jonathan Slinger, who recently starred as Willy Wonka in the West End production of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, joins the cast to take on the role of Al Manners with Andrew Alexander as Eddie, EwArt James Walters as Forrester, Ncuti Gatwa as John, Faith Alabi as Millie and Daisy Boulton as Judy.

Written by trailblazing American playwright Alice Childress, the production tells the story of a group of African-American actors rehearsing for a 1950s Broadway productionin a theatre dominated by white men. By turns comic and dramatic, Childress's Trouble in Mindwas the first play by a black woman to be professionally produced in New York.

Wiletta Mayer is a talented African-American actress who has spent a lifetime building a career in the theatre. Now she's on Broadway, rehearsing 'Chaos in Belleville', an anti-lynching play with a white director. As rehearsals progress, Wiletta finds it increasingly difficult to relate to the part she is playing. Will she be able to overcome her misgivings and will the show go on?
