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.

If you don't live in Hyde Park, getting supper can be a little bit of a problem because you have to get to the area through rush hour traffic, resulting in a short window of time to eat before the show. There's nothing much around the theatre, so you have to eat somewhere else, then drive to the theatre.An Iliad dining • Nov 21 2013 star this tip starred

This is a condensed version of the Iliad, told by an unidentified narrator who is not exactly Homer, but might be a guy who was at the siege of Troy, and somehow wound up telling you about it, and to some extent, acting it out. If you are familiar with the Iliad, you will enjoy the colloquial take on it. If you are not familiar with it, I think you will enjoy it as a first exposure to the Iliad. It's a one-man show, well acted. It's in a single act, lasting about 90 minutes. It has a few gory descriptions of killing.
