The Theatre Company of Saugus production for winter 2018 will be “Almost, Maine,” a comic drama, by John Cariani. 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’s 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. There are 20 roles being performed by nine actors, who are each playing two or more characters. They come from all over the north of Boston region.
