Actor Tanya Moodie is captured in a blurred photograph. She is wearing a leopard fur coat, with glamorous hair and makeup. The distorted image gives the impression that she has more than one face. Her shadow appears on a blank wall with the words, Trouble in Mind. 

Trouble in Mind

Audio described in-house.

A radical satire of racism in theatre.

In 1950s America, protests for racial equality erupt in the face of voter suppression.

On Broadway, Wiletta Mayer, a talented black actress, begins rehearsals for a new play about racism – written and directed by two white men.

When Wiletta finds that her arguments to tell the truth of the story are dismissed, she decides to take action.

First staged over 60 years ago, Trouble in Mind is widely considered the masterpiece of actress and playwright Alice Childress.

Nancy Medina directs Tanya Moodie (Motherland) in this wry and radical satire of racism in theatre.
