April 23 – May 18, 2014

In Water by the Spoonful, winner of the 2012 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, a young Iraqi war veteran comes home to reconnect with his family and finds his mother running a chat room for recovering addicts. This multimedia journey stretches from Philadelphia to Puerto Rico exploring human connection in the
digital age. Birth families splinter and online families collide as they all search for a safe haven in a messed up world.
