Almost, Maine cast
The cast of "Almost, Maine" includes, from left to right, starting at top row: Julia Clark, Megan Abbott, Alie Litras, Eva Knowles, Allen Niles, Ben Jackson, Jonathon Seaman, Jazzmine Crapps and Stephanie Delgado.

The play by John Cariani takes place on a cold, clear, moonless Friday night in the middle of winter, where things are not quite what they seem in the remote, mythical town of Almost, Maine. As the northern lights hover in the sky, the town's residents find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and often hilarious ways.

“It’s sweet, funny and tender, plus a little quirky," said Jeanine Henry, the Director of BCC's Theatre Arts program. "It’s an excellent date night play.”

The play's actors are students in BCC's Theatre Rehearsal and Performance class.

"Almost, Maine" opened off-Broadway in the winter of 2005 and has been performed hundreds of times since that New York debut, winning praise for its smart, funny take on life and love.
