LIVE THEATRE:play-AlmostMaine

February 13–March 2
 “Almost, Maine…….A Romantic Comedy  by John Cariani
  • 3 weeks, 12 shows…….
  • Thursdays 7:30 pm
  • Fridays & Saturdays 8:00 pm
  • Sundays 4:00 pm

On a cold, clear, moonless night in the middle of winter, all is not quite what it seems in the remote, mythical town of Almost, Maine. As the northern lights hover in the star-filled sky above, Almost residents find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and often hilarious ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. But the bruises heal, and the hearts mend—almost—in this delightful midwinter night’s dream.

Unity Theatre , 300 Church St, Brenham, TX,  979-830-8358

“Alice in Bed”
This dramatic fantasy, taking place in the 1890’s merges the life of Alice James, the brilliant sister of William and Henry James, with the heroine of Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland. It is a play about the anguish, grief and rage of women; and about the triumphs and limitations of the imagination.
