Celebrated playwright Quiara Alegría Hudes is the winner of the 2012 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the 2008 Tony Award for Best Musical for IN THE HEIGHTS. Her new play, WATER BY THE SPOONFUL is set somewhere in Philadelphia, where 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. Pulitzer Prize winner WATER BY THE SPOONFUL is a heartfelt meditation on lives on the brink of redemption.

"A complete and satisfying work... This is a very funny, warm, and, yes, uplifting play with characters that are vivid, vital, and who stay with you long after the play is over."
– The Hartford Courant


STOREFRONT CHURCH is the new play from John Patrick Shanely, winner of the 2005 Pulitzer Prize for DOUBT: A PARABLE and the 1987 Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay for MOONSTRUCK. When a Bronx Borough President is forced by the mortgage crisis into a confrontation with a local minister, the question they confront is one that faces us all: What is the relationship between spiritual experience and social action?

“Mr. Shanley's intense engagement with questions of religion and ethics… remains distinctive and invigorating...some of Mr. Shanley's sharpest comic writing in years."
– NY Times
