Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The plight of being the parents of an emotionally disturbed youngster was eloquently addressed in the three-part British miniseries Kid in the Corner. Written by Tony Marchant, the series starred Douglas Henshall and Clare Holman as Alex and Theresa Letts, mother and father respectively of hyperactive boy Danny Letts (Eric Byrne). As Danny's behavior becomes less predictable and more destructive, Alex and Theresa try to curb the boy first with therapy, and then prescription drugs -- all to no avail. Their inability to cope with or control Danny's sickness has a negative effect on their "normal" daughter, Lucy (Brooke Kinsella). Kid in the Corner was seen on Britain's Channel Four from November 24 to December 8, 1999.
