Dallas Theater Center presents Trouble in Mind

All events are subject to change due to weather or other concerns. Please check with the venue or organization to ensure an event is taking place as scheduled.

The 1955 comedy-drama Trouble in Mind - planned for Broadway but canceled when the playwright wouldn’t tone down its message - made a triumphant premiere in New York in 2021. Now, Dallas will get to experience the theatrical excitement in this regional premiere.

The play follows an experienced Black stage actress through rehearsals of a major Broadway production in Alice Childress’s funny, moving, and ultimately shattering look at racism, identity, and ego in the high-stakes world of New York theater.
