"Water by the Spoonful"
Mainstage | By Quiara Alegría Hudes | Directed by Elise Santora
Somewhere in Philadelphia, Elliot, a Puerto Rican veteran of the Iraq war, has returned home and is struggling to find his place in the world.
Somewhere in an online chat room, recovering addicts forge an unbreakable bond of support and love.
The boundaries of family and community are stretched across continents and cyberspace as birth families splinter and online families collide.
“Water by the Spoonful gives off a shimmering, sustaining warmth. Ms. Hudes writes with empathy and vibrant humor.”
—Charles Isherwood, The New York Times
“Hudes corrals harsh voices and brutal stories into a magnificent whole that is beautiful not because it is lovely but because it is brokenheartedly tender and true.”
—Charles McNulty, Los Angeles Times
