About this show

The Yellow Wood follows a teen with Attention Deficit Disorder on his journey to self-acceptance. 17-year-old Adam is frantically trying to memorize Robert Frost's poem "The Road Not Taken" to recite in his English class, but because he didn't take his Ritalin on this particular morning, he can't get much farther than the first line, "Two roads diverged in a yellow wood…" before an amazing yellow wood begins to grow right there in his high school! Desperate to prove he's beaten his disorder, he struggles to memorize the poem--and as it begins to take on a life of its own, Adam is pulled deeper and deeper into the yellow wood, where he must decide which road he will travel.
