Almost, Maine Opens October 23

Almost, Maine is written by John Cariani

Born and raised in Presque Isle, Maine, John Cariani is both a playwright and an actor. His major career break came in 2004 when Cariani, the playwright, watched Almost, Maine premier in Portland, Maine, and Cariani, the actor, earned a Tony nomination for his role as Motel in the Broadway revival of Fiddler on the Roof. In January 2006 Almost, Maine moved to New York and off-Broadway where it was hailed as “Love in the Time of Frostbite” by the New York Sun.

Almost, Maine is a fictional place that very possibly could exist. This unique play takes place at 9pm on a Friday night in the middle of the deepest part of a northern Maine winter. Not your typical script, Almost, Maine consists of nine stories that introduce you to characters played by 6 different actors. The script lets the characters shine and gives you plenty to think about in the way of unexpected poetic situations and romance. This play will capture your emotions and surprise you.

“it’s the first play in a long time that I instantly wanted to see again. Almost, Maine is almost perfect.” –Electric City (Scranton)
