SUMMARY:  It is a cold Friday night in the middle of winter in a small, mythical town in northern Maine called Almost, Maine. A field of stars – a clear, cold, moonless northern night sky – serves as the backdrop for the entire play.

The New York Times describes Almost, Maine as “a series of nine amiably absurdist vignettes about love, with a touch of good-natured magic realism… witty, romantic, unsentimental.  A beautifully structured play with nifty surprise endings (most but not all of them happy).”

Did you know that Almost, Maine was produced during the Covid-19 pandemic of 2020? 

Almost, Maine was the perfect project to retrofit for the socially distanced needs called upon during the time of COVID-19.  Each short vignette was performed by members of a household or social bubble, and a total of 19 talented actors took the stage to perform this charming and delightful play. 

The live audience was  intimate and yet physically distanced. A wider audience was included through the magic of live-streaming technology. In such unprecedented times, the production team and CCT Board of Directors, worked in accordance with the BC Health Authority guidelines, to create a safe and unique way to continue the very important role of live theatre in our community. 

Our sincere appreciation to our show sponsor
