About the play

Welcome to Almost, Maine, a place that’s so far north, it’s almost not in the United States. It’s almost in Canada. And it’s not quite a town, because its residents never got around to getting organized. So it almost doesn’t 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. Hearts are broken. But bruises heal, and the hearts mend—almost—in this delightful midwinter night’s dream.

About the players

Almost, Maine is a collection of short scenes connected by the small town of Almost, and even more so, the actors that portray characters like a woman who carries her broken heart around in a doggie bag, or a man who can’t feel pain. The players of Almost, Maine include Macy Brown, James “Robby” Carlisle, Brian Herrmann, Michele Hinton, Haley McAlpin, Martha Pratt, and Olivia Thompson.

About the crew

What play would be complete without the arduous task of the production team. Directed by Thomas Alvey, Stage Managed by Joshua West, Set Design by CJ Bloomer, Costume Design by Traci Bray, Lighting Design by Steve Cleberg, Set Assistance by Adam Wesley and Gunner Richardson.
