SANTA FE, N.M. — A play that won the Pulitzer Prize only two years ago is being performed in Santa Fe simply because Fran Martone was intrigued by the title when she saw it advertised while she was in Washington, D.C.
“I ordered the play and fell in love with it on the first read” – something that hardly ever happens, said Martone. “The rest is history.”
“Water by the Spoonful” will be performed by Teatro Paraguas today through March 16 in its small, black-box theater on Santa Fe’s mid-west side. Two storylines run on different tracks in the beginning – one of a veteran of the Iraq War working in a Subway restaurant and dealing with the death of the aunt who raised him, while the other follows the stories of crack addicts interacting through an online forum.
