Welcome to Almost, Maine, a town that’s so far north, it’s almost not in the United States—it’s almost in Canada. And it almost doesn’t exist. Because its residents never got around to getting organized. So it’s just … Almost.
One cold, clear Friday night in the middle of winter, while the northern lights hover in the sky above, Almost’s residents find themselves falling in and out of love in the strangest ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. Love is lost, love is found, and love is confounded — life for the people of Almost, Maine will never be the same.
ALMOST, MAINE: It’s love. But not quite.
Comedy. Comedy is often found in the most serious of situations. Shakespeare knew this, so too did Moliere. Chaplin, Keaton and Lloyd – the greatest of our silent comedians found their humor in serious situations. It is this balance of comedy and drama that makes ALMOST, MAINE so charming.
John Cariani’s comedy is both sweet and strange, and it is that odd concoction that makes Almost Maine a very funny and charming show. This is a simple world — a bench and a few more small pieces of furniture occasionally are used to set a scene’s location, but that is all – our focus is on the actors and the world they inhabit.
The result is a collection of small, interconnecting, delightful romantic comedies that are nothing short of marvelous.
