    Attention Surplus Disorder

    Ten-Minute Play

    In a world where ADD is the norm, Mitchell seeks treatment because he actually reads entire books and watches complete movies. Dr. Hunter is joined by his colleague Dr. Collier and assistant Ms. Wright as he sporadically investigates Mitchell's symptoms. Mitchell perseveres as they occasionally return to diagnosing his problem, which he fears to be the dreaded Attention Surplus Disorder.

    Available for production (3M, 1F, 1 set). Contact the playwright.

     

    Origins

    What would (will?) the world be like when people with longer attention spans become the exception? What will treating today's "normal" look like when seen as a problem?
