Roundabout Theatre Company presents the Broadway premiere of Alice Childress's Trouble in Mind
Follow an experienced Black stage actress through rehearsals of a major Broadway production in Alice Childress's wry and moving look at racism, identity, and ego in the world of New York theatre. At the forefront of both the Civil Rights and feminist movements, the prescient Trouble in Mind
opened to acclaim off-Broadway in 1955, and was announced to move to Broadway in 1957...in a production that never came to be.
