VTC presents ‘Almost, Maine’

DUMMERSTON — Vermont Theatre Company presents Almost, Maine, written by John Cariani and directed by Brenda L. Seitz, with performances at the Evening Star Grange in Dummerston Center on March 6-8 and 13-15.

Friday and Saturday shows begin at 7:30 p.m., and Sunday matinees begin at 3 p.m.; tickets are available at the door and are $15 general admission and $13 for seniors and students.

Almost, Maine, is a small community, a loose gathering of neighbors where nearly everyone knows nearly everyone else. On a single night, in the time between 8:50 and 9 p.m., beneath the northern lights, nine pairs meet in various locales to discuss life, love, and loss.

Within this single, mythical village exists the full spectrum of relationships: romantic, platonic, familial; old friends and new; tenuous and everlasting. The play explores all the ways folks connect as fellow humans in our own little corners of this vast universe.
