The Leland and Gray Players present the production of Almost, Maine

Almost Maine posterThe Leland and Gray Players present a production of Almost, Maine by John Carian on June 1-3 at the Dutton Gym in Townshend VT.

This production has nine short vignettes that allow the audience to see the heartbeat between human beings as they struggle through life in the search for love. Almost, Maine feels so utterly real, yet the situations are oddly surreal.

A woman’s heart is broken and shattered, literally as though it were slate from a roof. A man turns all his physical love from his heart into an engagement ring cradled in a red bag. Two women literally fall to the ground in love, their knees giving out, making it impossible to stand. A shoe falls from the sky, symbolizing a lost relationship.

These moments of surrealism highlight the power of love and make us as theatre participants shiver and sigh in delight and surprise. Almost, Maine encourages the audience to  feel alive in their hearts. To feel so deeply in love means one is willing to break one’s own heart in the process. What happens in this process is surprising and tantalizing for everyone involved, both onstage and off.


Performances are:

  • Friday June 1 at 7:30
  • Sat June 2 at 3pm and 7:30 pm
  • Sun June 3 at 3pm.

Tickets are available at the door; $10 for adults and $5 for students and seniors.
