Water by the Spoonful
Sunday, August 16 at 3pm – Water by the Spoonful is the fourth reading of our Fresh Takes Reading Series. Somewhere in Philadelphia, 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, birth families splinter and online families collide. A winner of the 2012 Pulitzer Prize, WAM Theatre invites the Berkshire audience to partake in this artful and heartfelt meditation on life on the brink of redemption.Buy Tickets More Info
