The play takes place on a cold, clear night in the middle of winter in the remote, mythical town of Almost, Maine. As the northern lights hover in the star-filled sky, Almost’s residents find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and often hilarious ways. There is an element of fantasy in the stories: a woman who keeps the pieces of her broken heart in a bag; a man who can’t feel pain (literally) until he learns to love. The plot of each vignette results in some sort of “magical moment” in which characters come to an understanding about what is happening to them. The play appeared off-Broadway in 2006, and since has enjoyed success with regional and community theaters across the country. It has been called “sweet, poignant, and witty” (New York Daily News) and “a whimsical approach to the joys and perils of romance” (New York Times).
