Water by the Spoonful




“For a drama peopled by characters who have traveled a long way in the dark, “Water by the Spoonful” gives off a shimmering, sustaining warmth.”

-NY Times




This Pulitzer Prize-winning play is a deeply lyrical piece about everyday people trying to cleanse themselves from the constant struggle of substance abuse. 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.
