Water by the Spoonful

By Quiara Alegría Hudes

Paperback £19.99

A soldier returns from Iraq and struggles to find his place in the world, while somewhere in a chat room, recovering addicts forge an unbreakable bond. The boundaries of family and friendship are stretched across time and cyberspace in this second installment of Quiara Alegría Hudes’s acclaimed trilogy.

Water By the Spoonful won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama 2012. It is the second in a three-play cycle which began with Elliot, A Soldier's Fugue and concludes with The Happiest Song Plays Last.

Press Quotes

'A very funny, warm and, yes, uplifting play with characters that are vivid, vital and who stay with you long after the play is over.'

Hartford Courant

'Ms. Hudes possesses a confident and arresting voice.'

New York Times

'Hudes brilliantly taps into both the family ties that bind as well as the alternative cyber universe… Her dialogue is bright, her characters, compelling… It’s only when cyber meets the real world that anger gives way to forgiveness and resistance becomes redemption; the heart of the play opens up and the waters flow freely.'
