Jan 25 – Feb 16 | Almost, Maine play

From the Footlighter’s website: Welcome to Almost, Maine, a place that’s so far north, it’s almost not in the United States. And it’s not quite a town, because its residents never got around to getting organized. So it almost doesn’t exist. One cold, clear, winter night, as the northern lights hover in the star-filled sky above, the residents find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and hilarious ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. But the bruises heal, and the hearts mend—almost—in this delightful midwinter night’s dream.

When: Jan 26 – Feb 17
Where: Redlands Footlighters | 1810 Barton Road, Redlands, CA, 92373
