Stages Repertory Theatre presents this second play in the trio of pieces by Pulitzer Prize winner and Tony Award nominee Quiara Alegría Hudes, telling the story of an Iraq War veteran named Elliot.

Here, we find the struggling addict attempting to connect with his mother, who is also a former heroin addict. Called “ combination poem, prayer and app on how to cope in an age of uncertainty, speed, and chaos” by Variety, this is an examination of the fragility of life and the awesome power of forgiveness.

Unique Cross-Theater Opportunity for Houstonians

Houston audiences will have the rare opportunity to follow Hudes’ Elliot Trilogy playing concurrently. Main Street’s production of Elliot, A Soldier’s Fugue, Part I of the Trilogy, and Stages Repertory Theatre’s production of Water by the Spoonful, Part II, open one day apart in February.

The final installment of the trilogy, The Happiest Song Plays Last, will have a staged reading during the first week of March (location to be announced).

Ages 8 and under are not permitted in the theater.
