“…a fierce compassion for its characters and an ardent love for Philadelphia’s diversity…there’s an unassailable heart to Hudes’ work…

In a tucked away corner of North Philly, six regulars gather at a neighborhood watering hole. Over twenty years, they turn their collective memories into a vivacious mythology. The tales they’d rather forget, however, keep sneaking up and tapping them on the shoulder. At Daphne’s Dive, an aloe plant, a girl’s sneaker, a stiff drink, and mounds of trash become talismanic treasures to a group of outsiders trying to be “in” together.”

This regional premiere drama from Quiara Alegría Hudes tracks the patrons of a Philadelphia watering hole, her hometown and the setting for her Pulitzer Prize-winning play “Water by the Spoonful” which was produced by SCTC in 2016, through a period of nearly 20 years.

“…a slow-burning, vibrantly sketched portrait of a scruffy North Philly booze joint…as much a portrait of a gentrifying community as a splintering group of friends.” — Time Out (New York)
