Congratulations to the cast and production team for Water by the Spoonful on a great run to kick off the 2016 season!
Here are comments from a few patrons who saw our production of this Pulitzer Prize winning work, directed by our very own Marlon D. Deleon, Marketing and Development Coordinator!
“Excellent. Touching. Great work, thank you.”
“The show was great! By casting against type, the director underscored how chat rooms allow anonymity and recreation in whatever image we wish to embody.”
“Powerful, intimate, confrontational, heartbreaking, thought-provoking, and full of resilient hope. This is exactly the type of theatre that makes us love SBCT and has kept us coming back for more for over 30 years.”
Winner of the 2012 Pulitzer Prize!
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.
