Written by Quiara Alegrнa Hudes

Directed by Ray Croce, Sr.

“For a drama peopled by characters who have traveled a long way in the dark, Water by the Spoonful gives off a shimmering, sustaining warmth. Ms. Hudes writes with such empathy and vibrant humor about people helping one another to face down their demons that regeneration and renewal always seem to be just around the corner.” – Charles Isherwood, New York Times.

Winner of the 2012 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, “Water by the Spoonful” is “a rich, brilliant montage of American urban life that is as dazzling to watch as it is difficult to look away from.”

Somewhere in Philadelphia, Elliot has returned from Iraq and is struggling to find his place in the world. Somewhere in a 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. This play is a heartfelt and poetic meditation on lives on the brink of redemption and self-discovery during a time of heightened uncertainty, “as startling and innovative and human on the page as on the stage.”

This show runs approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes without an intermission. Show times: Friday and Saturday nights at 8:00PM and Sunday matinйes at 2:00PM.
