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.

The acting skills were sharp! The script made a lot of unsubstantiated leaps straight into intense emotion; could have built up to it a little more.
Characters didn't seem real in many instances. A captain in the US army would never refer to a rifle as a "gun."
Ms. Long was fantastic.
LiveWire Chicago presents __Oohrah! __
By Bekah Brunstetter, directed by Brad Akin
Featuring Peter Esposito, Joel Ewing*, Madeline Long*, Melissa Engle, Josh Odor, Calliope Porter and Ian R. Tranberg
Surprised by her husband’s early return from a tour in Iraq, Sara is unprepared for the complications of his re-entry into civilian life. Tension simmers around their gun-obsessed teenage daughter, Sara’s oddball live-in sister Abby, and Abby’s newest infatuation – a sexy, young Marine who’s keeping a secret. Oohrah! turns a comic eye to a homecoming gone awry. **
