The Valley Players will present Almost, Maine, by John Cariani, February 5-8 and 12-14 at 7:30 pm, and Feb. 15 at 2 pm, at the Valley Players Theater, Rt. 100, Waitsfield. The play is directed and produced by Ruth Ann Pattee.

The play takes place on a cold, clear night in the middle of winter in the remote, mythical town of Almost, Maine. As the northern lights hover in the star-filled sky, Almost’s residents find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and often hilarious ways. There is an element of fantasy in the stories: a woman who keeps the pieces of her broken heart in a bag; a man who can’t feel pain (literally) until he learns to love. The plot of each vignette results in some sort of “magical moment” in which characters come to an understanding about what is happening to them. The play appeared off-Broadway in 2006, and since has enjoyed success with regional and community theaters across the country. It has been called “sweet, poignant, and witty” (New York Daily News) and “a whimsical approach to the joys and perils of romance” (New York Times).

The cast of the Valley Players production includes Julie Aitcheson, Tom Badowski, Doug Bergstein, Michael Carr, Liam Hannon, Linda Iannuzzi, Marie Schmukal, and Jenifer Tuck. The Stage Manager is Joanne Puente. The lighting design is by Irene Bishay and Winston Cadwell, and the set design and construction is by Michelle Nucci, Michelle Di Mario, and Ruth Ann Pattee.
Tickets can be purchased in advance by going to or calling 802-583-1674.
