Trouble in Mind

Alice Childress's Trouble in Mind will make its Broadway debut at the American Airlines Theatre with Roundabout Theatre Company in winter 2021/22.

Trouble in Mind is Childress's first full-length play, and it was produced off Broadway at Stella Holt's Greenwich Mews Theatre in 1955, where it ran for 91 performances. Trouble in Mind explores racism in the American theatre, and the play-within-a-play chronicles Black actors' frustrations dealing with their white colleagues. 

A founding member of the American Negro Theatre, Childress was the first Black female playwright to be produced professionally in New York with her play Gold Through the Trees in 1952.

Tickets for Trouble in Mind will be on sale soon.
