Trouble in Mind

Shaver Theatre

Trouble in MindAlice Childress’s play, Trouble in Mind is a semi-satirical study of racism in the theater world that proves fascinating on several levels. It is a sometimes-acrid backstage comedy, a frank look at mid-1950s social attitudes and also a commentary on the discomfort between blacks and whites that remains relevant to some degree today. The play opens on the first day of rehearsals for a new Broadway drama, “Chaos in Belleville,” that is written and directed by white artists. Several African-American actors are complaining to one another about the stereotypical roles they have played in other shows.

GloriaSwine Palace begins the season with Pulitzer Prize finalist, Gloria by Branden Jacobs-Jenkins. Taking place in modern-day Manhattan, it starts on a normal work day for a group of aspiring writers who are growing tired of the monotony of their desk jobs. Then in a shocking moment everything changes. The resulting response is both disturbing and uncomfortably believable in today’s world. Make sure to see this divisive and enthralling play.
