Reviews: Enquirer | CityBeat | BTC |

A powerfully incendiary satiric play based on the conflict of not compromising one’s artistic integrity. Trouble in Mind follows the journey of a mixed-raced cast in 1955 as they embark upon rehearsals for a racially charged play. This tightly wrapped work is a manic roller coaster of suppressed emotions on the edge of free-fall. Childress, who became the first female winner of the Obie Award, pokes knowing fun at actors’ complaints, directors’ frustration and even with the well-meaning efforts of theater professionals to overcome their racial feelings.

Directed by Mark Hardy
