Set during rehearsals for a major Broadway production, TROUBLE IN MIND illuminates the inner life of a Black actress struggling with her career. South Carolina playwright Alice Childress’s 1955 play – which finally premiered on Broadway in 2021 and was nominated for best revival of a play, is a funny, moving, and heartbreaking look at racism, identity, and ego in the high-stakes world of New York theatre.
WHY SEE THIS SHOW: A show that finds the contemporary in the classic, this reads like a play written in 2023 not 1955. If you are a fan of writers from South Carolina who didn’t receive their due when they were alive, this show is for you.
