'Water by the Spoonful' Calendar


January – March 2018

EVENT: “Water by the Spoonful” By Quiara Alegría Hudes Directed by Lileana Blain-Cruz

DESCRIPTION: A janitor, a software mogul, a college grad and an IRS paper-pusher have one thing in common. Although they live thousands of miles apart, these four people share a secret: they’re recovering addicts who have found a safe haven in an online chat room. There, with liberal doses of jokes and bullying, they help each other navigate the broken terrain of their lives. But when an Iraq War veteran’s tragedy spills over into their cyberhome, everything changes. In this fearless Pulitzer Prize winning play by Quiara Alegría Hudes (“In the Heights”), worlds virtual and real unfold onstage, challenging our notions of family, forgiveness, community and courage.
