Arden Theatre Company's production of Water by the Spoonful  by Quiara Alegría Hudes will continue its run through Mach 16.


A group of strangers seek connection, recovery, and redemption in this commanding new play that redefines what it means to be a family. From the Main Line to Girard Avenue, Swarthmore College to an online chat room, playwright Quiara Alegría Hudes draws from her Philadelphia roots for this 2012 Pulitzer Prize winning play.  “I can't tell you what a particular thrill it is for my work to ‘come home.’” says Hudes in an excerpt from the Arden’s stagebill notes. “[Philly] is a city of brilliant, often overlooked, individuals with stories just begging to be told. And so this play was born.”
