Elliot returns home to Philadelphia to reconnect with his Puerto Rican family after his time spent serving in Iraq. Upon arriving, he finds his family in flux and his career prospects limited. When his mother's online support group begins to overshadow his aspirations for the future, the real and online worlds - one forged by blood, another by survival - collide in this funny, urgent and timely 2012 Pulitzer Prize winner.

WATER BY THE SPOONFUL is the second in a trilogy of plays that began with Hudes' Elliot, A Soldier's Fugue, a play about a young Marine coming to terms with his time in Iraq and his father's and grandfather's service in Vietnam and Korea. The third play in the trilogy, The Happiest Song Plays Last, is scheduled to make its world premiere in April, 2013 at The Goodman Theatre in Chicago.
