|Details:||WATER BY THE SPOONFUL AUDITIONS TODAY, APRIL 9TH|
THE SHOW RUNS FROM JUNE - JULY 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. Everyone is searching for something they've lost; everyone is recovering from some form of dissonance. WATER BY THE SPOONFUL is a warm, funny and heartfelt meditation about lives on the brink of redemption.
