ABOUT THE SHOW

Welcome to Almost, Maine, a place that’s so far north, it’s almost not in the United States. It’s almost in Canada. And it’s not quite a town, because its residents never got around to getting organized. So it almost doesn’t exist. One cold, clear, winter night, as the northern lights hover in the star-filled sky above, the residents of Almost, Maine, find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and hilarious ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. But the bruises heal, and the hearts mend—almost—in this delightful midwinter night’s dream.

WHAT ARE BLACK CHAIR PROJECTS?

Black Chair Projects (BCP) are an exciting branch of Magenta Theater where actors perform staged readings of plays utilizing the bare minimum rehearsal time. Sets are minimal, using primarily black chairs, and lighting is drawn from cues already programmed into the system. Black Chair performances generally run for one or two nights only.

 

AUDITION INFO
