Comprising nine short plays that explore love and loss in a remote, mythical almost-town called Almost, Maine. Exact cast size is approximately 8, a mix of men and women with parts available for multiple adult ages. Actors could have the opportunity to play multiple characters.

A woman carries her heart, broken into nineteen pieces, in a small paper bag. A man shrinks to half his former size, after losing hope in love. A couple keep the love they have given each other in large red bags or compress the mass into the size of a diamond. These playful and surreal experiences are commonplace in the world of John Cariani’s Almost, Maine, where on one deeply cold and magical Midwinter Night, the citizens of Almost — not organized enough for a town, too populated for a wilderness — experience the life-altering power of the human heart. Relationships end, begin, or change beyond recognition, as strangers become friends, friends become lovers, and lovers turn into strangers. Propelled by the mystical energy of the aurora borealis and populated with characters who are humorous, plain-spoken, thoughtful, and sincere, Almost Maine is a series of loosely connected tales about love, each with a compelling couple at its center, each with its own touch of sorcery.

Show Dates Mid-September  all performances at Evendale Community Church
