Trouble in Mind: Lost Masterpieces from the African American Theater Canon is a joint venture between the A.R.T. and the Hutchins Center for African and African American Research. Curated by Hilton Als, writer and theater critic for The New Yorker magazine, this series brings exceptional actors to staged readings of under-produced and long-neglected plays by brilliant, and often over-looked, African American playwrights. Aimed at reviving these lost masterpieces and bringing them, newly, to a contemporary audience.
Trouble In Mind has been planned as a three-year reading series with two different readings to take place each year. The additional plays and dates for the readings will be announced at a later date.
