Spring 2014 Theater Productions


"Distracted"
by Lisa Loomer
Directed by Mark Kamie

A hilarious, poignant look at a modern family! What's wrong with nine-year-old Jesse? He can't sit still, he curses, he raps and you can't get him into - or out of - pajamas. His teacher thinks it's Attention Deficit Disorder. Dad says, "He's just a boy!" And Mama's on a quest for answers.

Is Jesse dysfunctional, or just different? Don't we all have ADD, to some degree? Mama consults a psychologist, a homeopath, a neuropsychologist and an environmental physician. She talks to neighbors, whose kids have their own diagnoses. A psychiatrist prescribes Ritalin for Jesse, but surely a pill can't solve all of his problems.

Throughout, Jesse is an offstage voice, which becomes louder and angrier, but is in danger of fading away. And his parents' marriage is in peril. Everyone is distracted, even the actors - they're breaking character!

A hilarious, provocative, and poignant look at a modern family and an epidemic dilemma: Are we so tuned into our 24/7 info-rich world that we've tuned out what really matters?
