For the Tenth Anniversary season of Krass, a ten-year-old serio-comedic masterpiece about ADD. The play compares living with Attention Deficit Disorder with enduring endless vaudeville performances. While the audience is delighted by Dr. Backwards, Mae West, and a few surprises Flo Ziegfeld would envy (if only he'd lived to see this show), Eliza's ADD has complicated her life since childhood. She's a sculptor who rarely completes a project, can't hold down an office job, and fears her scattered attention will embarrass her husband and hurt his career. Pharmaceuticals can alter her behavior, but at what cost?
