BERWICK – One of the most frequently produced play in America comes home to Maine this week.

Hackmatack Playhouse in Berwick closes its summer season with “Almost, Maine” by Maine playwright and actor John Cariani. The romantic comedy runs through Sept. 3.

It’s a play with nine vignettes and nine couples, all played by four actors, which is how Cariani wrote it when it debuted at Portland Stage Company in 2004. It has since been produced across the country and across the world, and translated into nine languages. It is produced more than 400 times a year.

It’s a play about love and loss, and is set in the northern Maine town of Almost, where residents fall in and out of love on a cold, moonless night.

The cast includes Monique Foote of Dover, New Hampshire; Adam LaFramboise of Kittery,; Jennifer Henry of Kittery; and Josh Gluck, a student from Boston who performed in Hackmatack’s production of “On the Town” earlier this month.

Director Genevieve Aichele described the play as “the theatrical equivalent of haiku with uniquely wry, northern New England humor.”
