The Boy Who Would be Good
- Production organisation Ridgeway School

The drama centres on Jordan, a schoolboy with ADHD. His behaviour appears antisocial, abusive and irritating. Except, that is, when he’s drawing: then he concentrates to produce impressive results.
Although he’s prescribed medication, he hates to take it. A confrontation on a bus brings things to a head and he goes back on his tablets. They calm him.
But what other effects are the pills having? Is Jordan still Jordan when he takes them? “I’ve got a problem but I’m still me,” he says when he throws them away. But can he address his behaviour without resorting to medication?
