The 2012 Pulitzer Prize Winning Water By The Spoonful
Critically acclaimed playwright Quiara Alegria Hudes first made a name for herself with the book for Lin Manuel Miranda's first broadway smash In The Heights, going on to win the 2012 Pulitzer Prize for her powerful drama about addiction 'Water By The Spoonful', now coming to LA's Mark Taper Forum alongside a run of her war-centred heavy-hitter Elliot, 'A Soldier's Fugue' as part of the Eliot Trilogy.
In a chatroom for recovering drug addicts, a student, an IRS agent, a financier and an aunt of a soldier come together and forge a strong bond. Offline however, Odessa Ortiz's nephew Elliot has turned to drugs to cope with the PTSD resulting from a recent Iraq tour. Together they must face seemingly insurmountable obstacles to keep this Puerto Rican family together, learning that blood is thicker than water.
