Water by the Spoonful

Hello, Friend of Festival Playhouse~

The Festival Playhouse of Kalamazoo College is proud to announce the fourth play of our 57th season, Water by the Spoonful by Quiara Alegría Hudes. Directed by Bianca Washington.

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. This play tells the story of Odessa Ortiz, a.k.a. Haikumom. Online, Odessa moderates a chat room that ministers to those struggling with addiction. Offline, Odessa herself is still fighting her own disease and trying to hold together a family that is falling apart at the seams.

We will have ticket ordering information available by the end of this month. Thank you for your patience.
