(from the AP/Washington Post, 4/16.)

Quiara Alegria Hudes’s play “Water by the Spoonful,” about an Iraq war veteran struggling to find his place in the world, has won the 2012 Pulitzer Prize for drama, leaving its author in a “daze.”

The drama, which was produced last fall at Hartford Stage Company in Connecticut, was called an “imaginative play about the search for meaning” by the Columbia University’s prize board on Monday.


(Hudes’s work can be found in One on One:  The Best Women’s Monologues for the 21st Century and Duo! The Best Scenes for Two for the 21st Century—links in the sidebars of this site.)
