TROUBLE IN MIND
By Alice Childress
May 16-25, 2014
It is 1957 and talented but struggling actress Wiletta Mayer has just been given her breakthrough role in Chaos in Belleville, an anti-lynching play practically ripped from the headlines and set to open on Broadway. But is fame worth more than perpetuating a stereotype? Directed by Court Theatre Resident Artist Ron Oj Parson, prejudice and ambition are uneasy bedfellows in this “scathingly funny, wise and extraordinary” (Washington Post) satire by Alice Childress.
