"Almost, Maine" is a small town that is almost not in Maine and almost not a town. Eleven short scenes explore interactions about love that all occur on the same evening. Almost, Maine is one of the most produced plays of the last decade. According to Playbill, Almost, Maine is the most-produced high school play for 2015 and 2016.
