What if you were the mother of a child who may or may not have A.D.D.? Who would you turn to for help? And when you get it, do you trust their judgment?  Says the playwright, Lisa Loomer, "A.D.D. is a fairly subjective diagnosis. There is no blood test for it. There is a checklist. What intrigues me is, who is doing the checking?" As the mother in the play searches for answers the playwright explores points of view from parents to the medical establishment to the medical profession in general.  How does a mother do what is best for her child? "This is an A.D.D. society, and I don't know whether this is a dysfunction or a difference.  There are people in the play who know, and you'll hear from them."  This play is recommended for mature audiences only.
