Josh is such an interesting character that you can't help but root for. This is a beautiful play about the lengths we go to to help others as our own lives fall apart. ”

Premiere Stages, the professional Equity theatre in residence at Kean University, is pleased to recognize “The Reservoir” by Jake Brasch as a Semi-Finalist for the 2023 Premiere Play Festival. “The Reservoir” rose through a competitive selection process conducted by Premiere staff and a panel of outside theatre professionals to become one of 40 Semi-Finalists out of 701 submissions. The panel was particularly impressed by Josh’s flawed earnestness fueling his desire to hold onto things, as well as the balanced laugh-out-loud comedy and serious reflections. Our congratulations and thanks to Jake. ”

Never have I ever burst into tears while READING a play. Jake is such a special writer. Their characters are so familiar and funny and surprising. A beautiful, honest portrayal of how hard (but not impossible) sobriety is and how weird and hilarious the journey is. Even the hearts you smash along the way. But there's always room for amends. Brilliant work. ”
