Adapted from Herman Melville's white whale of a novel, Moby Dick, this love letter to American theatre finds the book's Pequod boat crew transformed into the Bad Settlement Theatre Company. Between their rundown surroundings, flagging finances, a newbie of a stage manager and an artistic director who's consumed with the singular focus of putting on the first-ever flawless production of Moby Dick, it's safe to say that this crew is definitely in deep water. A drama that sways towards satire and is populated with bold, scrappy, lovable characters, Season on the Line is a sincere tribute to the trials, tribulations and triumphs that abound in the world of theatre.

(re)discover theatre, a recent addition to the Chicago theatre scene, doesn’t shy away from a challenge! On the heels of their well-received production of Hamlet, they are excited to present An Evening of Beckett at the Heartland Studio.
Jessica Shoemaker, one of the text coaches for the production, explains, “(re)discover theatre’s goal is to adhere to the tenets of text and style – while trying to rediscover the experience of these powerfully human plays. Beckett provides an especially exciting outlet for the exploration of what frightens, excites and drives: with scripts that are extraordinarily prescriptive, yet totally shrouded."
The show will consist of three popular short plays, written by the famously open-ended Samuel Beckett: Play, Not I, and What Where. Director Matt Wills explains the company’s choice, “I’m fascinated by Beckett: the immediacy of his plays and the eternal relevance to whatever world we are living in. Though his plays are difficult to understand on the surface, I feel there is a gut reaction, a visceral component, that no audience can escape.”
