Stage Right Productions presents Almost, Maine by John Cariani at 2nd Street Theater, 220 NE Lafayette, Bend, February 24- March 11 with performances Thursday through Saturday at 7:30pm with two Sunday matinees at 3pm.
Synopsis: Playful and surreal experiences are commonplace in the world of John Cariani’s Almost, Maine, where on one deeply cold and magical Midwinter Night, the citizens of Almost — not organized enough for a town, too populated for a wilderness — experience the life-altering power of the human heart. Relationships end, begin, or change beyond recognition, as strangers become friends, friends become lovers, and lovers turn into strangers. 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.
The play is directed by Susan Benson and features several newcomers to the 2nd Street stage, who will be playing multiple roles. It premiered at the Portland Stage Company in Portland, Maine in 2004 where it broke box office records and garnered critical acclaim.
Tickets are $19 for adults, $16 Students/Seniors and are available by calling the box office at 541-312-9626 or at www.2ndstreettheater.com. There will be an Opening Night champagne reception from 6:30-7:30pm on Friday, February 24th.
