Stages Repertory Theatre presents Elliott Trilogy: Water by the Spoonful (Part 2)
Main Street Theater, Stages Repertory Theatre, and Mildred’s Umbrella Theater Company, in connection with Sin Muros: A Latinx Theater Festival at Stages, will present Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winner Quiara Alegría Hudes’ Elliot Trilogy. While all are stand-alone plays, they follow the story of Elliot and his mother across the wars in which they served and through their lives as they strive for peace and connection. The trilogy revolves around Elliot Ortiz, a Puerto Rican Marine veteran from Philadelphia.
In Water by the Spoonful, Elliott, an Iraq War veteran and former addict, finds solace in an online chat room as he struggles to reconnect with his mother - herself a former heroin addict. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Water by the Spoonful is an uplifting and heartfelt meditation on broken lives, forgiveness, and the strength to carry on.
