Greenwich Library is pleased to present Almost, Maine by John Cariani, on March 18, at 2 p.m. in the Cole Auditorium. The play, produced by M&M Productions, is a romantic comedy. The New York Times called it a "...a whimsical approach to the joys and perils of romance. Magical happenings bloom beneath the snowdrifts." And the New York Daily News described it as "Sweet, poignant and witty."
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.
Almost, Maine is directed by Cos Cob resident Larry Schneider, who also directed Jake's Women, Rabbit Hole, Fiction, Three Tall Women and last year's Collected Stories. It stars Amanda B. Goodman and Daniel Basiletti.
The program is free and open to all. For more information, contact Alice Bonvenuto at (203) 622-7919. This presentation is made possible through the support of the Greenwich Library Board of Trustees and contributions by generous donors.
