<em>Almost, Maine </em>by John Cariani. A small town finds romance beneath the northern lights. Welcome to Almost, Maine, a town that’s so far north, it’s almost not in the United States—it’s almost in Canada. And it almost doesn’t exist. Because its residents never got around to getting organized. So it’s just…Almost. One cold, clear Friday night in the middle of winter, while the northern lights hover in the sky above, Almost’s residents find themselves falling in and out of love in the strangest ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. Love is lost, found, and confounded. And life for the people of Almost, Maine will never be the same. Almost, Maine: It’s love. But not quite. Discover why this romantic comedy was the most widely produced play int he country in the past decade. Featuring a cast of talented students, alumnae/i and guest artists, with professional actors Rick Blunt of the American Shakespeare Centre and Taylor Gruenloh of Tesseract Theatre in Saint Louis.
