This will be the third production of Reservoir. Originally produced off Broadway by The Drilling Company in 2011, it received a positive review by the New York Times (http://theater.nytimes.com/2011/01/12/theater/reviews/12reservoir.html). The Second production is scheduled to open in Berlin, Germany in April of 2012.
Private Frank Hasek, a young veteran of a foreign war, returns home to await his redeployment. While suffering from the strains of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder he struggles to keep his job as a mechanic in order to support Marisa, the mother of his newborn son. However, unsettling visions and a series of unfortunate events threaten to upend his career and derail his relationship. Although he seeks help from an overworked psychiatrist at VA hospital, his behavior becomes increasingly erratic, and threatens to turn violent when he discovers that Marisa is having an affair with his Staff Sergeant.
