“Think Thornton Wilder meets The Twilight Zone.”

Almost, Maine is a quirky comedy comprised of nine short plays that explore love and loss in a remote, mythical almost-town of Almost, Maine. It premiered at the Portland Stage Company in Portland, Maine, in 2004 where it broke box office records and garnered critical acclaim.

Propelled by the mystical energy of the aurora borealis and populated with characters who are humorous, plain-spoken, thoughtful and sincere, Almost Maine is a series of loosely connected tales about love, each with a compelling couple at its center, each with its own touch of sorcery.
