Trouble in Mind follows an experienced Black stage actress through rehearsals of a major Broadway production. It’s a wry and moving look at racism, identity and ego in the world of New York theater.

Originally produced off-Broadway in 1955, a Broadway transfer of the play was announced in 1957, but the production never happened. Alice Childress was a founding member of the American Negro Theatre and the first African-American woman to be produced professionally in New York with her work Gold Through The Trees in 1952.
