    I treasure this play! The Reservoir is funny and sad and brave. Baruch Hashem for queer Jewish plays and playwrights <3

    Beautiful play that hit me right in the grandparent. Soaring familial drama and I love the use of graphics by the writer.

    I've not cried in months, but Jake got me pretty good. This play is tragic and beautiful and heartwarming and really very good. The style of writing is really engaging; I would love to see it put up (somewhere near me)!
