En esta obra, ganadora del premio Pulitzer, el personaje de Elliot intenta recuperarse después de un doble servicio en la guerra de Iraq; mientras, su madre, Odessa, lucha con su propia recuperación. Los límites familiares y comunitarios se extienden por continentes y por el ciberespacio mientras que los lazos de sangre se deshacen y las familias online entran en conflicto.

Water by the Spoonful . Translated into Spanish by Laura Martinez. Elliot has returned home from Iraq and is struggling to find his place in the world. Somewhere in a chat room, with liberal doses of humor and confrontation, recovering addicts help each other navigate the broken terrain of their lives. The boundaries of family and community are stretched across continents and cyberspace as birth families splinter and online families collide.

Directed by Julie Beckman. Featuring the talents of Rose Cano, Jany Bacallao, Yesenia Iglesias, G Valmont Thomas, Fernando Cavallo, Kerry Skalsky, and Rojo Davis (Stage Manager).
