    DJD Theater: 800 19th St N, Birmingham, AL 35203
    The ASFA Theatre Arts Department fall mainstage production.

    Almost, Maine by John Cariani, is set in a place that’s so far north, it’s almost not in the United States. It’s almost in Canada. And it’s not quite a town, because its residents never got around to getting organized. This charming play is a series of 9 vignettes about love. 

    The audience will see characters explore love and loss in a remote, mythical place. Strangers become friends, friends become lovers and lovers turn into strangers. This play has been called the most produced play in North American high schools, and the best new play written in 2006.
