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.

Woyzeck doesn’t really exist — the work was left unfinished by Georg Büchner upon his death in 1837. The original manuscript is fragmented, crossed out and chemically altered. For decades, the incomplete work has fascinated avant-garde arts and scholars who have studied and adapted it. The Woyzeck Project seeks to encourage today’s Chicago arts community to respond to what has been famously called the first working-class tragedy.
Pony is a world premiere by Sylvan Oswald, directed by About Face Artistic Director Bonnie Metzgar as part of The Woyzeck Project. The production features Starring Jessica Hudson, Matthew Sherbach, Kelli Simpkins*, Janet Ulrich Brooks*, and Kristina Valada-Viars*
