Almost, Maine

Second Stage Production

Auditions: January 8-9, 2018

Performances: March 1-4, 2017 (Ticket sales begin February 1, 2018)
Location: Quinn Hall (Memorial Park)

A woman  carries her heart, broken into nineteen pieces, in a small paper bag. A  man shrinks to half his former size, after losing hope in love. A couple  keep the love they have given each other in large red bags, or compress  the mass into the size of a diamond. These 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.

Take three delicious, malicious wives, add three miserable, unloving  husbands—and chill. That's the recipe of Michele Lowe's tantalizing new  comedy that had Broadway audiences cheering. The Smell of the Kill revolves around Nicky, Debra and Molly who have tolerated one another  during once-a-month dinners for years. While their unseen spouses play  golf in the dining room, the women exchange confidences for the first  time revealing that all three marriages are on the brink of disaster and  all three women are facing the challenges of their lives. Nicky's  husband has been indicted for embezzlement, Molly's husband is stalking  her and Debra's husband is leaving her for another woman. When the men  mistakenly lock themselves in a basement meat locker the women are faced  with a life-or-death decision—should they leave the men out in the  cold—permanently—or let them thaw?
