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.
