Trouble in Mind

TROUBLE IN MIND by Alice Childress, playing at The Guthrie Theater

It is 1957 in New York and rehearsals have begun for a racially integrated production, one the company hopes will be the next hit. But when prejudices and stereotypes emerge, African American actress Wiletta Mayer faces a difficult decision: should she swallow her pride and compromise her values to achieve her lifelong dream of playing a leading role on Broadway. This award-winning biting satire by the first African American female playwright to have a play optioned on Broadway has been called “one of the best plays about racism ever written” (The Washington Post).
