WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Set during the early years of the Civil Rights movement, this disconcerting yet disarmingly funny look at the inequalities of American life in the 1950's highlights the half-truths we tell ourselves about race relations and societal progress in America. Trouble in Mind follows a cast of black and white actors attempting to mount a production of a "progressive" new play. The play-within-the-play, entitled Chaos in Belleville, an anti-lynching drama set in the South, written by a white writer and directed by a white director, marks the first opportunity for Wiletta Mayer, a gifted African American actress, to play a leading lady on Broadway. But what compromises must she make to succeed?
