ACU Department of Theatre presented ‘Almost, Maine’ on March 25 and 26.
‘Almost, Maine’ is a play that describes different life scenarios that show the effect of love. These stories take place in a town called Almost in Maine. It has eight vignettes along with a prologue, interlogue and epilogue. Vignettes are different scenes that show the story it is portraying.
“‘Almost, Maine’ is a story about the different dimensions of love,” said Chloe Munson, junior theater education and directing major from Grapevine.
The vignettes in the play are:
- “Her Heart”: a story of Glory and East as Glory is carrying a bag that contains her heart in East’s front yard
- “Sad and Glad”: a story of Jimmy and his ex, Sandrine who he still has feelings for
- “This Hurts”: a story of Marvalyn and Steve who run into each other in a laundry room
- “Getting It Back”: a story of Gayle wanting to give back the love she received from Lendall and receiving her love that she gave him back as well.
- “They Fell”: a story of Chad and Randy who are two friends that start falling for each other
- “Where It Went”: a story about Phil and Marci trying to find Marci’s shoe while not getting along in their marriage
- “Story of Hope”: a story of Hope returning to rekindle her love with Daniel, but does not recognize who he is
- “Seeing the Thing”: a story about Dave discovering that he wants more from his friendship with Rhonda and gifts her a painting
“I think that this play is perfect for Abilene,” said Juan Rivera, senior theater education major from Odessa. “One thing about Abilene that I really like is the fact that there are so many positive Christian people here and we all know love in our own way.”
