WATER BY THE SPOONFUL by Quiara Alegría Hudes

Ironweed Productions presented Water by the Spoonful by Quiara Alegría Hudes as part of a collaboration with Teatro Paraguas and the Santa Fe Playhouse to bring her three-play cycle, The Elliot Trilogy, to Santa Fe!  Our production, directed by Valli Marie Rivera, ran October 3rd through October 20th.

  • Poignant, shocking and blisteringly funny, Water by the Spoonful is a riveting, Pulitzer Prize-winning play that grapples with the cost of war and addiction on human lives and explores the healing and redemptive power of family - the family into which we are born, and the one that we create for ourselves

  • The production featured a dynamic ensemble of actors from Santa Fe, Albuquerque and Los Angeles including Juan Mendoza Solis, Cristina Vigil, Alicia Lueras Maldonado, Frida Mercury, Dmetrius Conley-Williams, Evan Dalzell and Santiago Candelaria.

  • We performed in the new Second Space at Teatro Paraguas, a unique, intimate 50-seat, in-the-round experience on 3205 A Calle Marie in the exciting and electric Siler-Rufina District.​​


  • September 26th began a rolling three-week run of each play of the Trilogy: Elliot, A Soldier’s Fugue  (Teatro Paraguas) opening September 26th, Water by the Spoonful opening October 3rd and The Happiest Song Plays Last  (Santa Fe Playhouse) opening October 10th.   

  • The weekend of October 10th, all three plays ran concurrently giving audience members the opportunity to see the entire Trilogy within the space of one weekend.

  • Stay tuned for exciting information on our 2020 season, coming soon!
