Six decades after its intended Broadway opening, EastLine is pleased to be presenting this Long Island premiere. Wiletta Mayer is a veteran of the stage but she is not sure she has the clout to stand up to the hotshot white director and his less-than-progressive play. Alice Childress’s 1955 play – which finally premiered on Broadway in 2021 – is a funny, moving, and heartbreaking look at racism, identity, and ego in the high-stakes world of New York theatre.


Trouble in Mind by Alice Childress is directed by Nicole Savin and presented by EastLine Theatre in partnership with the Babylon Citizens Council on the Arts. Costumes are by Lyn Adler-Ciorciari, assisted by Wendy Pollak Grimm. Stage management is by Michelle Savin.

The cast features Everton Bailey, Sheilah Barksdale, Brad Hamler, Howard Heller, Kate Jergensen, Isaiah Joseph, Genesis Rosado, James Santora, and Harrison Vogel.
