Ashland High School Theatre collaborates with OSF veterans to present ALMOST MAINE, a magical love story.
Ashland High School Theatre closes their 2018-19 season and the 25th Anniversary of their OSF/AHS Partnership with a delightful comedy directed by OSF company member, Annie Paul.
Almost Maine by John Cariani will play 8 shows:
Thursday-Saturday, May 2-4 & May 9—11 @ 7:30 pm
Sundays, May 5 and 12 @ 2 pm.
On a Friday night in the middle of a long and bleak winter, the residents of the remote, mythical town of Almost, Maine explore love and loss in wonderfully awkward, unexpected, and whimsical ways.
Under a big, moonless sky with the northern lights dancing all around, new relationships blossom, hearts are both broken and mended, and love evolves in life-altering ways.
Almost, Maine, written by John Cariani, is a series of nine vignettes each featuring a different couple. The New York Daily Newsdescribes the play as “sweet, poignant, and witty.” It premiered at the Portland Stage Company in Portland, Maine in 2004 where it broke box office records and garnered critical acclaim.
