Almost, Maine

Warm your heart in the ice-cold, mythical town of Almost, Maine this February. Nine short vignettes explore love, loss and friendship with a touch of humor and tenderness. Written by John Cariani, Almost, Maine has been produced by over 2,500 theatre companies. Come let Cary Players help you brush off the winter doldrums just in time for Valentine’s Day with this delightful show directed by Randy Jordan.

Some Thoughts from the Director, Randy Jordan:

Almost, Maine is a romantic comedy, built on an underlying foundation of the realities of finding and sustaining “that” relationship. Written by the Tony nominated stage actor, television (Law and Order and others) and film actor, and playwright John Cariani, it consists of 9 different stories. The stories originated as audition and performance pieces for Cariani and a group of friends, that were later shaped into this wonderful ensemble piece about 9 couples in process of falling in love, out of love, and understanding love. Love is found, lost, and confounded and hearts are changed, broken, mended, and surprised all in the same moment, under the Northern lights, in Almost, Maine. As a result of one charged moment, life is never the same.
