“Almost, Maine,” the award-winning play by John Cariani from Presque Isle, is being presented at Marsh River Theater, Monroe Highway/Route 139, Friday and Saturday, May 7 and 8 at 7:30 p.m.

On a cold, clear, Friday night in the middle of winter, all is not quite what it seems in the remote, mythical town of Almost, Maine. Residents of Almost find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and often hilarious ways. Knees are bruised, hearts are broken and love is lost, found and confounded. But the bruises are healed and the hearts mended, almost, as the play inventively explores the mysteries of the human heart, touching audiences with laughter, heartbreak, and hope.
