Almost, Maine
Directed by Bob Kleinberg

January 26 – February 17, 2018

Location: Greenbelt Arts Center

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.
