Aqua City Actors Theatre (ACAT) continues its 2017-2018 season—MAINE, MANNERS AND MAYHEM—with “Almost, Maine” by Maine native John Cariani. Performances are Jan. 12-13 and 19-20 at 7:30 p.m. and Jan. 14 and 21 at 2:00 p.m. in Studio 93 at The Center, 93 Main St., Waterville.
Directed by ACAT veteran Joe Klapatch, “Almost, Maine” features a multi-generational cast of eighteen actors in nine vignettes, all taking place on one cold winter night in the fictional far northern Maine hamlet of Almost. Love is in the air, magic is in the night, and hope is in the hearts of young and old alike.
Playwright John Cariani, who grew up in Aroostook County, is also a successful actor who performs regularly on Broadway. His play “Almost, Maine” has become one of the most performed plays in the world since it premiered at Portland Stage Company in 2004.
“It’s such a sweet show,” says director Klapatch. “Every role is a lead role for the eighteen actors and I am so excited for our audiences to experience each of the vignettes. The themes of love sought and love lost are truly universal, and you can’t help but identify with the characters. Love is never easy in Almost, Maine, and every ending is not a happy one, but that is life.”
