Disgraced, by Ayad Akhtar, is the taut drama of Amir Kapoor, an up and coming Muslim American lawyer who has rejected his religious background as overly rigid. Yet, at the insistence of his nephew and Islamic-inspired artist wife Emily, he chooses to attend the trial of an Imam who is charged with financially supporting the Hamas. At a dinner party that includes Amir’s coworker Jory, who is African American, and her husband, Isaac, Emily’s agent, who is Jewish, truths spill out that put Amir’s life in a new perspective. The show presents competing themes of assimilation versus exclusion, religious beliefs versus culture and tolerance versus prejudice.

On a cold, clear, moonless night in the middle of winter, all is not quite what it seems in the remote, mythical town of Almost, Maine. As the northern lights hover in the star-filled sky above, Almost’s residents find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and often hilarious ways. In this whimsical approach to the joys and perils of romance, knees are bruised, hearts are broken. But the bruises heal, and the hearts mend – almost – in this delightful midwinter night’s dream.

On a cold, clear, moonless night in the middle of winter, all is not quite what it seems in the remote, mythical town of Almost, Maine. As the northern lights hover in the star-filled sky above, Almost’s residents find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and often hilarious ways. In this whimsical approach to the joys and perils of romance, knees are bruised, hearts are broken. But the bruises heal, and the hearts mend – almost – in this delightful midwinter night’s dream.

Almost, Maine is comprised of 8 vignettes about love and the various emotions that can accompany it. These vignettes involve the various townspeople of the imaginary town of Almost, Maine, located in the wide open spaces of northern Maine, near Canada.

There are no specific characters to describe. This is an ensemble cast, and each cast member will play at least two separate roles. No accents please.

We are looking for 4 men and 4 women in their 30’s and 40’s to play the townspeople of Almost, Maine. Note: All roles are non-union and unpaid.

Married couples Karen and Gabe and Beth and Tom have been best friends for years, raising their children, sharing their summers at Martha’s Vineyard and dreaming how they will grow old together. Yet one evening at dinner, with Tom going out of town, Beth breaks down and tells Karen and Gabe that her marriage to Tom is falling apart. Unable to travel due to a storm, Tom finds out that Beth has broken the news without him, contrary to their agreement, and is furious. Tom visits Karen and Gabe and presents his side of the story. Now, each one now begins to wonder whether their lives were just lies, their relationships over, and their dreams only fantasies.
