Presenting Quiara Alegria Hudes award winning play Water by the Spoonful

Quiara Alegria Hudes award winning play Water by the Spoonful

Directed by Maria Scipione

MCC for first time is proud to present this Pulitzer Prize winning drama to our campus. The play, is a highly theatrical, multi-faceted story of addiction and recovery, despair and hope, past and future. In the aftermath of a significant death, the dead woman's sister, her son, his cousin, and several other characters struggle to come to terms with the immediate loss, painful memories, and the possibilities for a future free of past suffering.

The play begins with traumatized Iraq war veteran Elliot receiving the news of the sudden death of his mother, Ginny, and with him sharing the news with his musician cousin, Yazmin. As Elliot and Yazmin work through their own grief, cope with the grief of other family members, and struggle to make funeral arrangements that will please everybody, Ginny's sister Odessa continues to run a pet project: an online chatroom that offers support for people, like her, struggling to recover from an addiction to crack cocaine.

A highly theatrical, multi-faceted story of addiction and recovery, despair and hope, past and future. Everyone is living day by day or as they say spoonful by spoonful.
