UM Theatre & Dance to Present DISTRACTED, 10/22-11/2
The University of Montana is pleased to offer Distracted, a comic play with biting social commentary focused on a seemingly ordinary family. Distracted runs in the Masquer Theatre of the Performing Arts and Radio/Television Center on campus October 22-26 and October 29-November 2 at 7:30 pm.
Distracted asks a prescient question innumerable parents struggle to answer: where's the line between "kids will be kids" and a diagnosis of ADHD? In a thoughtful, humorous, and humane contemporary comedy, one family navigates the worlds of psychiatry, homeopathy, and psychology in their quest to help their son behave better at school and at home. Distracted takes advantage of inventive staging, double and triple casting, and a gleeful overthrow of conventional theatrical rules to keep the audience on its toes. It provides a perfect reflection of how today's incessant barrage of technology and media influences our every waking moment.
