"Almost, Maine," by John Cariani, directed by Olive Maines- Feb. 17-20 and 24-27, LCL Theatre: Welcome to Almost, Maine, a place that's so far north, it's almost not in the United States. It's almost in Canada. And it's not quite a town, because its residents never got around to getting organized. So it almost doesn't exist. One cold, clear, winter night, as the northern lights hover in the star-filled sky above, the residents of Almost, Maine, find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and hilarious ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. But the bruises heal, and the hearts mend - almost - in this delightful midwinter night's dream.

"Lucia," an original play by Rebecca Gorman O’Neill, direction and choreography by Greg Carlisle and Natasha Davis- Mar. 31-Apr. 3 and Apr. 7-10, LCL Theatre: Lucia (loo-CHEE-ah) Joyce was a professional dancer and the daughter of iconic author James Joyce and Nora Barnacle. She was romantically involved with Samuel Beckett before he became a literary master and was once a patient of psychoanalyst Carl Jung. Lucia spent the last two-thirds of her life in mental health facilities, her story overshadowed by famous men, especially her father. But in this multi-genre play, Lucia’s light shines brightest, illuminating a path for others like her.
