The play “Almost Maine,” written by playwright John Cariani, is a play filled with laughter, wit, sorrow and love. The play is set in a fictional city called Almost, Maine. In the play, the audience witnesses loss and love in a remote city, controlled by something that is out of the control of the characters. The play is composed of nine short plays within the play, and 11 short scenes.

The play is full of wit, which earned a lot of praise and awe from the audience. In one scene, two lovers fall in love. Literally. Every time they see each other, they fall in love all over again. The crowd was hysterical. In another scene, a woman has a broken heart. Literally. She carries it in a bag and shakes it several times. The crowd began to chant with laughter. She meets a repair man, who claims he can “repair it” since he’s a repair man. The crowd was left in awe after witnessing this scene of two star crossed lovers.

The characters in the play were controlled by something out of their control. Throughout the play, the presence of the “Northern Lights,” seem to have an affect on the characters. They fall in love with one another almost immediately after the Northern Lights present themselves.

What does this play show? The moral of the play is to believe in fate. Sometimes things may be out of your control but fate always has a huge part to play in your future. In this play, fate was the northern lights, making people fall in love with each other, something that was out of their control.

The drama club did a really good job; the audience can’t wait to see what else they have in store for this year.
