It looks like the theater got their hands on a play that just won the Pulitzer Prize.
Quiara Alegria Hudes’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play “Water by the Spoonful,” about an Iraq war veteran struggling to find his place in the world, will land in New York in December. Second Stage Theater said it will produce the work Off-Broadway for its next season, which also includes the satire “Modern Terrorism, Or They Who Want to Kill Us and How We Learn to Love Them” by Jon Kern.
Hudes has expressed hope that her play would make it to New York after its debut last fall at Hartford Stage Company in Connecticut, and after it won the Pulitzer Prize. Now it looks like her dream is coming true.
It’s the second of a trilogy that began with “Elliot, A Soldier’s Fugue” and ends with “The Happiest Song Plays Last,” making its world premiere next year in Chicago.
