Funny, pokes gentle fun at the full range of disconnection that is our norm these days, and evokes compassion about parenting, dysfunction, distractability, and the real challenges of attempting to be wholly human and present when it matters. Go!

We thought the play was very well done - good to great acting and well thought out story line. The issues addressed were realistic and no easy answers were presented - just like life.

This show was so funny. It took a serious matter that my friend and I have been living with for 14 years and it made us laugh about what we have gone through and how involved and "crazy" it made us. I took my 14 year old ADHD daughter who...continued

I personally connected with the characters and thought the acting and the presentation of the material was spot on! The visuals in the lobby added a participatory dimension which was also appreciated for great art.

Amazing, thought-provoking performance by Central Square Theater. A must-see for parents, but also for everybody. It forces us to look at the downside to the growing use of technology in our society - we are all constantly distracted with our cell...continued

It was a bit heavy, I have a 36 yr. old son who was having trouble in school and school had suggested that he might be experiencing ADHD. It was a really tough time of my life and husbands. He didn't take medication and it was constant parenting...continued

The Central Square Theater is a great place to see a play and this was a very good, very thought provoking one. The dialog is sharp and witty and the acting was pretty much terrific.
