"Hudes brilliantly taps into both the family ties that bind as well as the alternative cyber universe. . . . Her dialogue is bright, her characters, compelling. . . . It's only when cyber meets the real world that anger gives way to forgiveness and resistance becomes redemption; the heart of the play opens up and the waters flow freely." Variety "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." Hartford Courant "Ms. Hudes possesses a confident and arresting voice." The New York Times Winner of the 2012 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Quiara Alegria Hudes's drama is a heartbreaking, funny, and inspiring account of the search for family in both conventional and unconventional places. Somewhere in Philadelphia, Elliot has returned from Iraq and is struggling to find his place in the world, while somewhere in a chat room, recovering addicts forge an unbreakable bond of support and love. The boundaries of family and friendship are stretched across continents and cyberspace as birth families splinter and online families collide. Water by the Spoonfulis the second installment in a trilogy of plays that follow Elliot, a young veteran of the Iraq War. The trilogy's first play, Elliot, A Soldier's Fugue, was a finalist for the 2007 Pulitzer Prize and will be published by Theatre Communications Group concurrently with Water by the Spoonful. The trilogy's final play, The Happiest Song Plays Last, premiered in April 2012 at Chicago's renowned The Goodman Theatre.
