Proscenium Theatre

A scathing indictment of racism in American commercial theatre, Trouble in Mind tells the story of Wiletta Mayer, an African-American actress cast in a supposedly “progressive” play about racism by a white male author — it turns out to be anything but progressive, both in terms of its script and rehearsal environment. The production will be directed by Gerrad Taylor.
