LA Stage Co.'s 'Distracted' continues run at Bus Barn


The Los Altos Stage Company is slated to perform Lisa Loomer’s comedy “Distracted” through May 6 at Bus Barn Theater, 97 Hillview Ave.

The play, which opened last week, follows 9-year-old Jesse as adults attempt to find out what is wrong with him. His teacher says he has ADHD; his dad says, “He’s just a boy”; and his mom is on a quest for answers. The show looks at the challenges of modern daily life, posing the question: Are we so tuned in to our 24/7, information-rich world that we’ve tuned out what really matters?
