What’s wrong with 9-year-old Jesse? His teacher says he has ADHD, 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, asking the question: Are we so tuned-in to our 24/7, information rich world that we’re tuned out to what really matters?
Distracted has received critical acclaim, having been dubbed “smartly comic” by the Associated Press, “chronically entertaining” by The New York Daily News, and “favorite comedy of the year” by Time Out New York.
Los Altos Stage Company’s production of Distracted is directed by Executive Artistic Director Gary Landis (Middletown, Maple and Vine, The Fantasticks) and features CJ Aaronson, Vanessa Alvarez, Caitie Clancy, Jeff Clarke, Annika Diekgers, Leslie Ivy, John Stephen King, Judith Miller, and Dana Morgan. Scenic design by Christopher Fitzer, costume design by Lisa Claybaugh, lighting design by Miranda Waldron, sound design by Danielle Kisner, and property design by Ting Na Wang.
