Romantic Comedy in Summerland!


The Summerland Singers and Players are pleased to announce their spring 2014 production: Almost Maine by John Cariani.

Almost Maine is a delightful romantic comedy that has received important critical acclaim since its debut in 2006. Comprised of 9 short vignettes performed by 4 actors Almost Maine explores love and loss in a remote, mythical almost-town called Almost, Maine.

On a cold, clear, moonless night in the middle of winter, all Is not quite what it seems in the remote mythical town of Almost, Maine. As the northern lights hover in the star-filled sky above, Almost’s residents find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and often hilarious ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. But the bruises heal, and the hearts mend—almost—in this delightful midwinter night’s dream!
