The Un-Common Theatre Company continues our 40th season with our Winter Play Almost, Maine by John Cariani.
Welcome to Almost, Maine, a place thats so far north, its almost not in the United States. Its almost in Canada. And its not quite a town, because its residents never got around to getting organized. So it almost doesnt 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 midwinter nights dream. Almost, Maine is a series of nine amiably absurdist vignettes about love, with a touch of good-natured magic realism, witty, romantic, unsentimental. A beautifully structured play, with nifty surprise endings (most but not all of them happy). NY Times.
