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 hover in the star-filled sky above, 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 delightful midwinter night's dream. Almost, Maine is a heartwarming comedy that examines that magical, inexplicable, and complicated thing called “love” from a multitude of perspectives. Not everyone gets what they want and not everyone knows what they have, but no one is the same once the lights go down for the final curtain.
“A whimsical approach to the joys and perils of romance. Magical happenings bloom beneath the snowdrifts. ALMOST, MAINE explores the thunderclap of love and the scorched earth that sometimes follows.” —The New York Times
“Utterly endearing...with a faint dusting of snowbound magical realism. A place as distinct as Lake Wobegon or Cicely, Alaska.” — Broadway.com
