After a countless run of successful musicals, such as Parade and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, the Edwardian Players has decided to produce a straight-play, Almost Maine. The show, which follows the lives of residents of the town Almost, Maine on a Friday night, is comprised of 11 scenes, including a prologue, interlogue, and epilogue, all with separate stories and characters that interconnect by its conclusion. The main theme of the play is romance and love: The characters fall in and out of it in mysterious and whimsical ways.
Almost Maine premiered Off-Broadway in 2006 and garnered critical acclaim. It has since become one of the most produced plays in American high schools and a popular choice in professional and nonprofessional theatre companies worldwide. Almost Maine opens on November 19, running until the 22.
