Quiara Alegría Hudes’ 2012 Pultizer Prize-winning play is an involved tale of how the support sought for addiction and the other burdens life deals us can be as complicated as the affliction itself. Elliot Ortiz is a former Marine whose service in Iraq left both physical and psychological wounds. His online exchange with other addicted souls highlights the complications in all their lives. In weaving their various stories together, Hudes develops warmth for her characters even as their lives offer only glimmers of hope. Directed by Fran Martone, the Teatro Paraguas production of Water by the Spoonful runs Thursday through Saturday, March 6 to 8, at 7:30 p.m. with a Sunday, March 9, matinee at 2 p.m., and continues March 13 to 16. Teatro Paraguas Studio is located at 3205 Calle Marie. Tickets, $15 ($12 seniors and students; Thursday performances are pay-what-you-wish), can be reserved by calling 505-424-1601.
