Trouble in Mind by Alice Childress debuted Off-Broadway in 1955. It was “re-discovered” and had its Broadway premiere on November 18, 2021. Join us to see what makes this play worth attending 70 years after it was written! It seems unbelievable this play from the 1950s fits so neatly into 2024.

Trouble in Mind is a funny, moving, and insightful look at who we are and who we want to be.
