Almost, Maine a Valentine gift to the Buffalo Community

By Sherry Matney


Pete (Reese Davis) and Ginette (Ashley Thunderhawk) spend the entire play searching for each other or maybe a snowball. Sherry’s Shots Pete (Reese Davis) and Ginette (Ashley Thunderhawk) spend the entire play searching for each other or maybe a snowball. Sherry’s Shots Why would any place on earth be named Almost? Maybe because it is almost in Canada and almost not in the U.S. Maybe because it is almost a town and almost wilderness, but neither. Almost’s residents never got a round to establishing a township. So it’s just…Almost.

“Almost, Maine” is a play, presented by the BHS Theatre group, which comprises nine short vignettes about love, making it especially suitable for Valentine’s Day.

The play is about finding and losing love. It’s about broken hearts and marriages that have lost their spark and lovers who no longer love and other lovers who find each other. It’s Almost, Maine where it is love but not quite.

The play broke box office records when it opened in Portland, Maine but lasted only one month in its “off- Broadway” venue. According to Wikipedia, “Almost, Maine”, is the most produced play in North American high schools, recently surpassing A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
