The University of Montana Western Drama Department will be presenting the 2010 spring play, “Almost, Maine,” from Thursday, Feb. 25 through Monday, March 1. All performances begin at 7:33 p.m. in Montana Western’s Small Auditorium. The play is a collection of nine love stories set in a fictitious, wintry, rural town in northern Maine. Director Larry Brazill describes writer John Cariani’s production as both “funny and poignant.” “It’s a brilliantly crafted play,” Brazill explained. “It has fantasy blended with reality through rich metaphor. I think students will relate well to the characters and situations.” “Almost, Maine” opened off-Broadway in 2005 to glowing reviews and awards. The Wall Street Journal hailed the play as “one of the best regional theater productions” in 2005, and the American National Theatre declared “Almost, Maine” “one of the outstanding regional productions” the same year. All tickets are $5. Wells Fargo is the premier sponsor of the 2009/2010 Montana Western drama productions.
