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 is definitely a House creation, in the best way possible. I had high expectations from them after seeing The Sparrow, and this exceeded them! It managed to retain humor and cuteness through the dark twist they put on it. Awesome!

Instead she retreats into a nightmarish world in which evil rats are trying to destroy her. Just when all hope seems lost, Great Uncle Drosselmeyer arrives bearing a mysterious gift that may help Clara and her army of toys defeat the rats just in time for Christmas.
