Philip Akin on his acclaimed production of Trouble in Mind at this season's Shaw Festival
Theatre director Philip Akin spoke with Tom Power about his new production of the groundbreaking 1955 play Trouble in Mind, which is on now at this year's Shaw Festival. It's a play about white people putting on plays about Black people, and the compromises that Black artists have to make to work in the prevailing culture. Akin explained how the play's story mirrors his own experience as a Black actor over his five-decade career in show business.
