Sketching While Waiting for the Play to Begin

A play within a play, Trouble in Mind, is about racism within American society in the 1950’s. It’s an anti-lynching drama set in the South written by a white writer and directed  by a white director. An African American plays the lead actress. There are lots of laughs in this play, but, as you can imagine,  the deeper meaning of the play is quite powerful. I sat in the first seat, first row on the right. It was like I was on the stage living the part with the actors. The theater was a beautifully designed intimate space for this play to be presented.
