Stage 773 The Civility of Albert Cashier

Distracted  
Prop Theatre Distracted
 
Is nine-year-old Jesse dysfunctional or just different? Although he is mostly heard rather than seen, Jesse is the focus of Distracted -- he may have ADD, and his parents are being strongly urged to medicate him. In a time where everybody has a disorder and a medicine cabinet full of solutions, this provocative look at the problems of modern families is both hilarious and poignant. Quirky and theatrically irreverent, Distracted does a stellar job of creating a confusing world, and even occasionally has the actors break character for comic effect. This sharply observant, surprisingly humane play at the Prop Thtr in Chicago may raise more questions than it answers about the impacts of our 24/7 information-rich world.
