ACTS Theatre Presents: Almost Maine
LAKE CHARLES, LOUISIANA, UNITED STATES, June 11, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — A woman carries her heart, broken into nineteen pieces, in a small paper bag. A man physically changes, after losing hope in love. A couple keep the love they have given each other in large 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.
Almost Maine is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service Inc. Directed by Bobby Guillory, Kathy Heath, and Lori Tarver, the play will be on-stage Friday July 15th – Sunday July 17th. Friday and Saturday performances are at 7:30 pm and the Sunday matinee is at 3:00 pm. Tickets are $10 for all patrons. They may be purchased online at www.actstheatre.com or at our box office on the day of show.
