About the Event
About Water by the Spoonful by Quiara Alegría Hudes:
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 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.
The play, which was commissioned by Hartford Stage as part of Hudes' 2008-2009 Aetna New Voices Fellowship, debuted at Hartford Stage in October 2011. The play premiered off-Broadway at the Second Stage Theatre on December 11, 2012 (previews), and ran to February 10, 2013. Directed by Davis McCallum (who also directed the Hartford Stage production), the cast featured Armando Riesco, Liza Colon-Zayas and Zabryna Guevara.
