Date and Time for this Past Event

We meet in Philadelphia, where Elliot has returned from Iraq and is struggling to find his place in the world. We meet in
an online chat room—a digital sanctuary where recovering addicts fight to keep each other alive, hour by hour, day by
day. We meet in the moment and outside of the moment as boundaries of family and community are stretched across
continents and cyberspace. Birth families splinter and online families collide in this beautiful play that reminds us of the
power of connection and the value of forgiveness. Water by the Spoonful is a heartfelt meditation on lives on the brink of redemption.
