About Almost, Maine: A place that's so far north, it's almost not in the United States. It's almost in Canada. And it's not quite a town, because its residents never got around to getting organized. So it almost doesn't exist.
One cold, clear, winter night, as the northern lights hover in the star-filled sky above, the residents of Almost, Maine, find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and hilarious ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. But the bruises heal, and the hearts mend—almost—in this delightful piece for actors and their audiences.
Described by the author, John Cariani, as "a Midwinter Night's Dream", the play is a series of nine amiably absurdist vignettes about love, with a touch of good-natured magic realism thrown in to each. A true piece for actors and audiences, this is a beautifully structured play, with wonderful surprise endings – most, but not all of them, happy.
