What’s wrong with 9-year-old Jesse? His teacher says it’s ADD, his Dad says he’s just a boy, and his Mom is on a quest for answers. Distracted is a hilarious and poignant look at the challenges of modern family life. As we follow Jesse’s Mom through meetings with psychologists, homeopaths, and environmental physicians, both actors and audience members are forced to grapple with the question: Are we so tuned in to our 24/7 information-rich world that we’ve tuned out what really matters?
A smartly comic, sharply observant and surprisingly humane play. – The Associated Press
