Almost, Maine, by John Cariani- On a cold, clear, moonless Friday 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, residents of Almost find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and often hilarious ways. Knees are bruised; hearts are broken; love is lost, found, and confounded. Almost, Maine inventively explores the mysteries of the human heart, touching audiences with laughter, heartbreak and hope.
