      Water by the Spoonful
      by Quiara Alegría Hudes
      April 17 – 25, 2020

      In a far corner of the internet, moderator “Haikumom” (aka Odessa Ortiz) leads a chat room for recovering drug addicts. From behind their screens, individuals who might never meet in real life—a student, an IRS paper-pusher, and a financier—forge a bond as strong as blood. Offline, in a Puerto Rican neighborhood in North Philly, Ortiz’s real-life family is falling apart. Her nephew has returned from Iraq physically and emotionally broken. Her niece is unable to reconcile her identity as a woman from the North Philly barrio with her upper-crust, intellectual lifestyle. And her sister is dying of cancer. Quiara Alegría Hudes’ Pulitzer Prize-winning play is a powerful, compassionate look at the meaning of family and the burdens we must carry to protect it.
