By John Cariani
One deeply cold and magical Midwinter Night, the citizens of Almost -- not organized enough for a town, too populated for a wilderness -- experience the life-altering power of the human heart. Relationships end, begin, or change beyond recognition, as strangers become friends, friends become lovers, and lovers turn into strangers. Propelled by the mystical energy of the aurora borealis and populated with characters who are humorous, plain-spoken, thoughtful, and sincere, Almost, Maine is a series of loosely connected tales about love, each with a compelling couple at its center, each with its own touch of sorcery.

The Bald Soprano
By Eugene Ionesco
Known in theatre history as the seminal absurdist anti-play, The Bald Soprano outlines the meaning of absurdism. Absurdists define the universe as irrational and meaningless and the search for order brings the individual into conflict with the universe. In the play, we find the main characters, the Smiths are a traditional couple from London who have invited another couple, the Martins, over for a visit. They are joined later by the Smiths' maid, Mary, and the local fire chief, who is also Mary's lover. The two families engage in meaningless banter, telling stories and relating nonsensical poems. The play devolves into a series of complete non-sequiturs with no resemblance to normal conversation.

The Trojan Women
After ten long years of war, the great city of Troy has fallen. Only the mothers, wives and daughters of its slaughtered warriors survive. Seemingly, nothing else can befall them. But it does blow by blow and leaves them ruined. The women find unimagined resources in themselves and each other. The Trojan Women is an ancient tale of courage, resilience and hope in the face of utter devastation and widely considered the greatest anti-war play ever written, it remains both timeless and timely, a poignant meditation on the aftermath of war. Casting will be both flexible (M/F) and expandable. Additionally casting will include 4-6 dancers for an interpretive dance as part of the choral responses.
