Almost MaineThe aurora borealis sets the stage for the latest offering upstairs in the Roxy Regional Theatre’s 50-seat black box theatre. John Cariani’s whimsical romantic comedy Almost, Maine begins a limited run in theotherspace at the Roxy on Monday, March 27, at 7:00pm.

Directed by Kenneth L. Waters, Jr., with intimacy choreography by Emily Ruck, the play is a series of nine charming vignettes that explore love and loss in the remote, mythical almost-town of Almost, Maine — a place that’s so far north, it’s almost not in the United States. It’s almost in Canada. And it’s not quite a town, because its residents never got around to getting organized. So it almost doesn’t exist.

One cold, clear winter night, as the northern lights hover in the star-filled sky above, the residents of Almost, Maine — played by Allison Graham, David Graham, Bradley Oosterink and Ebony Strong — find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and hilarious ways. Knees are bruised, and hearts are broken. But the bruises heal, and the hearts mend — almost — in this delightful midwinter night’s dream.

Produced in part by Mary & Rick Konvalinka, Almost, Maine is presented through special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc., New York,

Almost, Maine is presented in theotherspace, the 50-seat black-box theatre located upstairs at the Roxy, and plays at 7:00pm four nights only: March 27, 28, April 3 and 4. In keeping with the theatre’s pay-what-you-can opening night tradition, all tickets not pre-sold at the regular price will go on sale at 6:30pm on Monday, March 27, for a $5 minimum donation.
