UIS Play Highlights ADHD

April 22, 2016
Distracted -- UIS Theatre

This play, written by Lisa Loomer, follows a married couple as their son is diagnosed with ADHD and they sort through conflicting advice about how to treat him. Dramatists Play Service, Inc. called this play "hilarious, provocative, and poignant", while Meredith Vogel-Thomas who plays Mama reports "She (Loomer) allows you to laugh with these characters, as much as cringe at what they do."
