The McNeese State University Theatre Bayou Players will present "Almost, Maine" at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 20-23, with a 2 p.m. matinee Feb. 24 in Ralph Squires Recital Hall.
"Almost, Maine" - by playwright and actor John Cariani - is about a delightful midwinter night's dream. 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. It's Friday at 9 p.m. as the northern lights hover in the sky above and 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 touching play that explores the human heart.
