With over 175 productions scheduled during the next 12 months, playwright John Cariani's ALMOST, MAINE is one of the most popular theatrical plays in the country. Since premiering at the Portland (Maine) Stage Company in 2004, it is estimated that ALMOST, MAINE has been produced by nearly 1,000 theater companies, amateur and professional. In Dramatics magazine’s 2009-2010 Top 10 list of most popular plays in North American high schools, it bumped Shakespeare’s “Midsummer Night’s Dream” from the No. 1 slot.

ALMOST, MAINE has now been added to the growing library of e-Scripts™ available on the Scene Partner® WebStore. The Authorized Acting Edition is available to actors and theaters for use in learning lines and mounting theatrical productions.

ALMOST, MAINE by John Cariani
On a cold, clear, moonless Friday 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, residents of Almost find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and often hilarious ways. Knees are bruised; hearts are broken. Love is lost, found, and confounded. But the bruises heal and the hearts mend—almost… ALMOST, MAINE inventively explores the mysteries of the human heart, touching audiences with laughter, heartbreak, and hope.
