Almost is a fictitious unorganized territory that fell just short of becoming a town in northern Maine. It is hundreds of miles from the ocean, and while the territory could be considered to be the countryside, the people that live in Almost are not rednecks, don’t have “Down East” accents, and aren’t eccentric. They’re regular people. ALMOST, MAINE shows scenes from the everyday lives of the residents of Almost. More specifically, it montages the love lives of nineteen different Almost-inians: the ups and downs and magical moments of love, that precious thing that connects us all.

Performances will be held on Wednesday, June 5; Wednesday June 12; Wednesday, June 19; Wednesday, June 26; Wednesday July 10; and Wednesday, August 28 at the Student Theater at Agganis Arena.

Following each performance, cast and crew members as well as members of the Stage Troupe executive board will be in the lobby to chat, answer questions, and welcome you to BU!
