Water by the Spoonful was a beautifully written play. It was an emotional experience . Every cast member brought you into their world of addiction. As serious as the subject was, there was also plenty of humor to go around . It is the 2nd story of a trilogy written by a very talented woman Quiara Hudes. It's on for another week, go see it. You won't be disappointed!

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.
