What's the matter with nine year-old Jesse? He can't sit still, he curses, he raps and he won’t get into – or out of – his pajamas. His teacher thinks the problem is Attention Deficit Disorder. Dad says, "He's just a boy!" Mama's on her own quest for answers, pinballing from the Internet to her neighbors to a succession of therapists and doctors. Distracted offers a hilarious, provocative and poignant look at a modern family grappling with an epidemic dilemma: Are we so dialed in to our 24/7 info-rich world that we can’t focus on what really matters?
The very talented cast includes a mix of TWTP first-timers and returning audience favorites.
Language Note: Distracted includes some adult language.
