    Equally funny and heartbreaking, "The Reservoir" is an absolutely amazing piece about family, addiction, mental health and how those things intersect with one's identity when grappling with recovery. This manages to have the raw, confessional feel of solo performance with Brasch's protagonist making such a clear and unique connection with the audience, while also taking full advantage of having several bodies in theatrical space. I cannot emphasize just how hilarious this piece is...until it made me catch my breath with some potent (and never sentimental) heart punches. The exploration of recovery is deep, comprehensive, complex, and important.
