About the Play/Event

Run: Jul. 19 — Aug. 17, 2019 Fridays & Saturdays at 8pm, Sundays at 2pm

[Water By The Spoonful] 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.

In this 2012 Pulitzer Prize winning drama,  Quiara Alegrîa Hudes, writer of the book for Lin-Manuel Miranda’s In the Heights, introduces us to Elliot, a veteran of the Iraq war. As he struggles to find his place in the world, we are also introduced to the members of an addiction chat room just trying to get through the day. When Elliot’s mother dies, cyber meets reality, anger gives way to understanding, and the resistance to their pasts and each other becomes a chance at forgiveness. In this heartfelt meditation on lives on the brink of redemption, the boundaries of family and community are stretched across continents and cyberspace, as birth families splinter, and online families collide.
