OTHER

This quirky, romantic comedy about love and loss has received critical acclaim throughout the nation. The story unfolds through a series of nine vignettes, all of which take place on a magical midwinter night when the citizens of Almost – a place too disorganized to be called a town and too populated to be a wilderness – discover the life-altering power of the human heart. Strangers become friends, friends become lovers, and lovers turn into strangers.

BREAKDOWN

Almost Maine is a series of vignettes taking place over a period of about ten minutes beginning at 8:50pm on a Friday night in the middle of winter. The plot of each scene in Almost Maine includes some sort of magical moment coinciding with the appearance of the northern lights. Each magical moment happens at exactly the same time- at 9 p.m.
*A note from the playwright about the characters: The people of Almost, Maine are rural Americans. They're not hicks. They're not quaint, quirky eccentrics. They don't have funny Maine accents. They are not cuddly and cute. They're hard-working, ordinary people. They're dignfied, honest and true. They take time to wonder about things. They speak simply, honestly, truly and from the heart.
