School Play – Almost, Maine

Almost Maine


Welcome to Almost, Maine, a place that’s so far north, it’s almost not in The United States. It’s almost in Canada, actually. 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, midwinter 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. 


Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. But the bruises heal, and the hearts mend – almost- in this delightful midwinter night’s dream.
