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 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.

by William Gibson
Directed by Megan Wells
First presented on stage in 1959, The Miracle Worker is about Annie Sullivan’s heroic effort to give the blind, deaf and mute 12-year-old Helen Keller the gift of language. In so doing, she also strives to free herself from her own dark past so that she can love again.
The Tony-winning stage adaptation of the Helen Keller story is based on Gibson’s earlier television movie of the same name, which was later filmed for the big screen with Patty Duke and Anne Bancroft. That script, in turn, was based on Helen Keller’s own autobiography, The Story of My Life, in which she detailed her childhood after the illness that robbed her of her sight and hearing.
Village Players’ production of The Miracle Worker is special in that it intends not to just tell a story we know from history far too well, but focuses instead on the universal aspects of the story — that of the human need for both personal dignity and compassionate love.
