Trouble in Mind
By Alice Childress
Directed by Jacob Jansson
An Elevated Studio Production at DePaul University
November 9-16, 2016
"Alice Childress’s play is a semisatirical study of racism in the theater world that proves fascinating on several levels. It is a sometimes acrid backstage comedy, a frank look at mid-1950s social attitudes and also a commentary on the discomfort between blacks and whites that remains relevant to some degree today."
"A Play About a Play Reveals Racial Tension" Michael Sommers The New York Times 4/19/2014
Elevated Studio Productions are small scale, $100 budgeted shows that are unsupported by the costume shop, and are mostly pulled from stock. Due to the nature of ESPs, formal renderings were not produced for this particular production.
