Water by the Spoonful

by Quiara Alegría Hudes

In this Pulitzer prize-winning play, Elliot, a young veteran recently returned from Iraq, struggles to make peace with all that he left behind in the desert, while taking care of his sick Mami Ginny.
Yaz, his cousin, a brilliant pianist, cannot escape the clashing worlds of forever being the "scholarship kid".
Haikumom aka Odessa, Elliot's birth mom, dedicates herself to taking care of her little forest or forum of recovering addicts, the only way she can keep herself alive.
Orangutan, recovering crack addict, just wants to find where she fits.
Chutes&Ladders, an office man, recovering crack addict, has resigned himself to a life of what he hopes to be harmless mediocrity.
Fountainhead, a brillant businessman and caring family man blessed with money and success, finds himself in the one situation where his smarts can't save him.

They're all just trying to stay above water.
