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.

Quotes & Highlights
“Village Players’ production is smartly directed by Dan Taube and wonderfully acted. The large ensemble walks the tightrope between absurdity and reality with ease. We get glimpses of the pain and poignancy beneath broad, cartoonish sketch episodes.” —Wednesday Journal
“Whether or not Dan Taube is correct when he says, ‘One day people will look at Durang’s body of work and the innovation and the vision and put him in a class with American masters like O’Neill and Williams,’ this production, presented with the loyalty and reverence of a period piece, surely supports that hypothesis.” —Chicagotheaterblog.com
The Marriage of Bette and Boo
by Christopher Durang
Directed by Dan Taube
As in any marriage, Bette and Boo were full of high hopes; but as the years have progressed that hope has faded. As the years go on and the marriage disintegrates, their only son Matt looks back to understand what went wrong between his parents, and what finally went right.
