Director’s Notes: Almost, Maine
As Valentine’s Day comes around, our thoughts inherently turn to love. This doesn’t mean we are all thinking the same thing. Some people remember the first kiss, the first look, long love that you slip into like a comfortable robe, or the love that broke and we left behind. Almost, Maine is all of these. This play is a snapshot of love in all its glory, grandeur, tears, and hope. As we peek into these characters’ lives we get to see memories of ourselves and the loves we’ve had, lost, dreamt of, and hope to find soon. To embrace love, we must accept every aspect of it. That is why this play is special; it lets us give the gift of love in all its forms to some of the most important people in the world, you, our audience.
Happy Valentines, and may you see the love on stage that you will find yourself.
