Everybody Drinks The Same Water, the original 2014 play produced by Miami Theater Center (9806 NE Second Ave., Miami), is a parable for our times. With its colorful costumes and stripped-down set, the play begins as a murder mystery after the public drinking water of a 13th-century Spanish kingdom is poisoned. The queen’s own son falls victim to the poison, and the bigoted queen immediately blames the Muslim man who built the aqueduct and the Jewish doctor who cannot cure her son. The tainted water soon reaches the peasants, and the struggle to solve the mystery and deal with the tragedy forces everyone to set aside their prejudices and hatred to work together. Three teens of different religions who unite and embark on a journey to uncover the culprit find an uncommon friendship along the way. The semihistorically based Everybody Drinks the Same Water was written by Miami Theater Center cofounder and director Stephanie Ansin and will run Wednesday through November 20. Showtimes are 10:30 a.m. Tuesday and Thursday, 10 a.m. Wednesday and Friday, 7 p.m. Saturday, and 3 p.m. Sunday. General admission costs $25, and students get in for $15.
