Welcome to Almost, Maine. A town so far north it’s almost in Canada. Well, 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, found, and confounded. And life for the people of Almost, Maine will never be the same. Almost, Maine: It’s love. But not quite.

 Almost, Maine—a romantic comedy—is a series of short plays about the residents of a fictional remote town in Maine called “Almost”. Each scene happens at exactly 9:00PM on a winter Friday night just as the Northern Lights appear in the sky. Just as the norther lights are created as a result of molecules in the magnetosphere becoming excited by solar winds, the people of almost find themselves momentarily excited by love. At times realistic and at times absurd, Almost, Maine is mostly very funny and sometimes dramatic. Every scene has an element of sentimental “magic.”
