May 21 - June 13, 2015 / Thursday - Saturday at 8:00pm, select Sunday's at 5:00pm

In Quiara Alegría Hudes' ("In the Heights") Pulitzer Prize winning drama "Water By The Spoonful," 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. 


With: Lidia Hanevold, Mellisa Kunnap, Pedro Ferreira, Dan Baykan, Monique Grant, John Fletcher, & Sundiata Rush

Winner of the 2012 Pulitzer Prize.
