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.

Well casted with sharp spot-on acting by all; clean, undistracting scenery. All in all, loved how clever, smart and tightly produced on all levels the entire show was. English subtitles for Mandarin portions.
