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.

This was a very good show. It was realistic, entertaining and the actors/actresses were very good. You never felt like you were watching a play; rather, we felt like we were watching an actual drama unfold. I went with my husband, sister and a male cousin. All of us were over 40. There was quite a bit of profanity but, if the play is to be realistic, it would have such language in it, unfortunately. Notwithstanding, a very good play.
