On a cold winter night in the mythical town of Almost, Maine, people fall in and out of love in unexpected and often hilarious ways.

The play takes place on a cold, clear night in the middle of winter in the remote, mythical town of Almost, Maine. As the northern lights hover in the star-filled sky, Almost's residents find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and often hilarious ways. The play appeared off-Broadway in 2006 and since has enjoyed success with regional and community theaters across the country. It has been called "sweet, poignant and witty" (New York Daily News) and "a whimsical approach to the joys and perils of romance" (New York Times).
The cast of the Valley Players' production includes Julie Aitcheson, Tom Badowski, Doug Bergstein, Michael Carr, Liam Hannon, Linda Iannuzzi, Marie Schmukal and Jenifer Tuck. The stage manager is Joanne Puente. The lighting design is by Irene Bishay and Winston Cadwell and the set design and construction is by Michelle Nucci, Michelle DiMario and Ruth Ann Pattee.
