Almost, Maine is a series of vignettes that explores relationships between people - people we know well and those we have just met. Almost, Maine is a small community where everyone knows most everyone else and their lives intersect quite often. These interactions are face-to-face, not through social media, phone, etc. It’s about human feelings and how those can change and develop in very short amounts of time. Almost, Maine takes place over a period of about ten minutes. Each scene starts at around 8:50 pm and ends a little after 9:00 pm.
The ensemble cast features
I lived in Maine for several years and when I began to read this play I realized, I knew these people and I knew where Almost, Maine would be if it existed. I had been there, spent a lot of time there, in fact, either fishing, camping, or snowmobiling. It’s quiet and peaceful. The people who reside there are close-knit. They know each other and their families going back generations and they care about each other.
