Water by the Spoonful

at The Gordy Theater

by Quiara Alegría Hudes

An Iraq War veteran and former addict finds solace in an online chat room as he struggles to reconnect with his mother– herself a former heroin addict. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Water by the Spoonful is an uplifting and heartfelt meditation on broken lives, forgiveness, and the strength to carry on.

RUN TIME: 2 hours with an intermission

GOOD TO KNOW: For mature audiences for adult themes including drug addition, recovery and strong language

 

Press

"A complete and satisfying work…A quartet of wounded yet fiercely bright characters who are trying to stay sober communicate over the internet. Those who feel the web is a cold connection may change their opinion after they see the very hot limbo in which these characters live and interact…This is a very funny, warm, and, yes, uplifting play with characters that are vivid, vital, and who stay with you long after the play is over." —The Hartford Courant.

"Quiara Alegría Hudes is a blazing talent…Her 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 praise…Provocative and brimming with life." —Talkin' Broadway.

"All the characters in Quiara Alegría Hudes' compassionate follow-up to Elliot, A Soldier's Fugue (a Pulitzer finalist) are seeking a kind of visa—one that will allow them to make it to a safe haven in a messed-up world. Everyone in the play is living day to day—or spoonful by spoonful, to echo Hudes' poignant metaphor—enabled, hindered, and supported by an ever-interrelated reach of family and friends. 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.
