Staged reading of Trouble in Mind by Alice Childress. Directed by Dawn Ursula.
Last year’s audiences were captivated by The Wedding Band, so we are thrilled to close out the Salon Series second season with another Alice Childress play, Trouble in Mind. In this show within a show, veteran African American actress, Wiletta Mayer, has been cast as the lead in an interracial Broadway show helmed by famous white director, Al Manners. But at every turn lies the racial realities of 1955. Simultaneously a witty love letter to the theatre and a call for equality, Trouble in Mind reminds us that we all have a part to play in the fight for civil rights. Tickets: $15 ($5 students)
