Trouble in Mind archiveWiletta Mayer is a talented African-American actress who has spent a lifetime building a career in the theatre. Now she is on Broadway, rehearsing Chaos in Belleville, an anti-lynching play with a white director. As rehearsals progress, Wiletta finds it increasingly difficult to relate to the part she is playing. Will she be able to overcome her misgivings and let the show go on? Peppered with knowing humour and richly drawn characters, this vivid depiction of backstage life smartly satirises the white dominated theatre scene of the fifties.
