“Almost Maine” was an Off-Broadway Show that has enjoyed much success as a touring production. Published in “New Playwrights: Best Plays of 2006, the play consists of 12 characters in 11 short scenes. The subject is, guess what, love. “Almost Maine” is the most produced play in high schools across America.
“John Cariani’s ‘Almost, Maine’ is a series of nine amiably absurdist vignettes about love, with a touch of good-natured magic realism … This is a beautifully structured play, with nifty surprise endings (most but not all of them happy) and passing references to characters from other vignettes, which slyly tell us more about them. Mr. Cariani describes the play’s subject as ‘falling in and out of love’. It is just as much about pain.” The New York Times
On a cold, clear, moonless night in the middle of winter, all is not quite what it seems in the remote, mythical town of Almost, Maine. As the northern lights illuminate the sky, Almost’s residents find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and often hilarious ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. But the bruises heal, and the hearts mend – almost – in this surprising midwinter night’s dream.
