In Quiara Alegría Hudes' ("In the Heights") Pulitzer Prize winning drama "Water By The Spoonful," Elliot has returned from Iraq and is struggling to find his place in the world. Somewhere in a chat room, recovering addicts keep each other alive, hour by hour, day by day. The boundaries of family and community are stretched across continents and cyberspace as birth families splinter and online families collide. "Water By The Spoonful" is a heartfelt meditation on lives on the brink of redemption.
With: Lidia Hanevold, Mellisa Kunnap, Pedro Ferreira, Dan Baykan, Monique Grant, John Fletcher, & Sundiata Rush
Winner of the 2012 Pulitzer Prize.

"Quiara Alegría Hudes is a blazing talentHer new play, WATER BY THE SPOONFUL, blazes with promise. Non-linear and fascinating, it is not easily followed but definitely worthy of both close attention and ultimate praiseProvocative and brimming with life." Talkin' Broadway
"The play is a combination poem, prayer and app on how to cope in an age of uncertainty, speed and chaos. When cyber meets the real world, anger gives way to forgiveness and resistance becomes redemption; the heart of the play opens up and the waters flow freely." Variety
