Limited concession stand, no alcohol. Bring an umbrella if it's raining, because you have to get from the parking garage to the theatre in the open.

If you don't live in Hyde Park, getting supper can be a little bit of a problem because you have to get to the area through rush hour traffic, resulting in a short window of time to eat before the show. There's nothing much around the theatre, so you have to eat somewhere else, then drive to the theatre.

Description

*March 20, 2014: Post-Performance Discussion With Theater Scholar David Bevington *

By Quiara Alegría Hudes

Directed by Henry Godinez_

Water by the Spoonful_ takes a painfully honest and surprisingly humorous look at the unconventional communities we create when we seek redemption from our personal failings. Dancing artfully from story to story, playwright Quiara AlegrÌa Hudes unlocks an intimate portrait of both a family and the members of an online recovery community as they struggle with the harrowing consequences of addiction. An expansive play that covers the distance from Puerto Rico to Japan, Philadelphia to San Diego, and the virtual world to the physical, _Water by the Spoonful _ties together the lives of a host of unforgettable characters in a play of genuine warmth about forgiveness and redemption.

About the Ticket Supplier: Court Theatre

Since the Court's founding in 1955 at the University of Chicago, its work has been inspired by the belief that classic theatre illuminates the stories and themes that are timely and timeless. Each one of the theatre company's provocative productions has guided its artists and audiences on an exploration into the vast human consciousness, and has created a timeline that connects the present to the past. Theatre, and classic theatre in particular, gives us insight into the past, understanding of our present, and directs us toward our future.
