Why See Water by the Spoonful?
The 2012 Pulitzer Prize-winning cyber-drama
The world of online chatrooms provides the central focus in this Pulitzer Prize-winning drama by In The Heights creator Quiara Alegria Hudes. Online, we can be whomever we want to be, and in a secretive chat-group, Odessa is leading a recovery-based discussion forum. However in real-life, her family life is falling apart at the seams, and her three other online friends are all suffering serious setbacks. Will their strong bond survive one of the member's talking about his traumatic war experiences, and will they be able to rally around to help?
The support group is a place of jokes, gentle ribbing and a way to bond with each other; however when Iraq War veteran Elliot shares a shocking tragedy with them in their safe space, everything changes. A fearless Pulitzer Prize-winning play that challenges notions of what strength and family truly means, this story asks us to examine what truly makes a supportive community.
