Scene Partner is Thrilled to Welcome Pulitzer Prize Winning Playwrights John Patrick Shanley and Quiara Alegría Hudes


“Mr. Shanley’s intense engagement with questions of religion and ethics…remains distinctive and invigorating…”
— NY Times

“Quiara Alegría Hudes is a blazing talent…”
— Talkin’ Broadway

by Quiara Alegría Hudes

Winner of the 2012 Pulitzer Prize for Drama

Somewhere in Philadelphia, Elliot has returned from Iraq and is struggling to find his place in the world. Somewhere in a chat room, recovering addicts keep each other alive, hour by hour, day by day. The boundaries of family and community are stretched across continents and cyberspace as birth families splinter and online families collide. WATER BY THE SPOONFUL is a heartfelt meditation on lives on the brink of redemption.

“A complete and satisfying work…
This is a very funny, warm, and, yes, uplifting play…

— The Hartford Courant
