Almost, Maine – It’s ‘almost’ a town in the State of Maine, a place where people “live life the way it should be.” With its whimsical approach to the joys and perils of romance and a healthy touch of ‘magical realism,’ Almost, Maine is a beautifully structured play comprised of eleven separate scenes (short plays, actually) with several very suprising endings.
