Almost, Maine  
The Art Place - Mountain View Almost, Maine
 
Welcome to Almost, Maine, a town that's so far north, it's almost not in the United States - it's almost in Canada. And it almost doesn't exist, because its residents never got around to getting organized. So it's just ... Almost. One cold, clear Friday night in the middle of winter, while the northern lights hover in the sky above, Almost's residents find themselves falling in and out of love in the strangest ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. Love is lost, found and confounded. And life for the people who live thee will never be the same. Almost, Maine is the first play written by actor John Cariani (Law & Order, Homeland), and now it comes to The Art Place Mountain View in Marietta. Come and be charmed by the show's overlapping vignettes about the joys and dangers of love courtesy of CenterStage North.

This incendiary adaptation by Jacobs-Jenkins was lauded by The New York Times as "... this decade's most eloquent theatrical statement on race in America today" and comes to the Atlanta stage courtesy of Actor's Express.
