Abbey Wark’s Senior Directing Thesis, written by John Cariani

     Abbey Wark’s senior Directing Thesis,Almost, Maine by John Cariani opened in Tawes Theatre and ran for two days. Almost, Maineis comprised of a series of stand-alone two-person vignettes about love and loss in the tiny, almost magic, town of Almost, Maine.

     The play was a success – the performers were given a standing ovation. Jourdan Aten ’20 said, “The set design was particularly impactful in conveying the winter landscape the show was taking place in. It was one of my favorite parts of the show!”

     Avid theatre-goer Olivia Libowitz ’18 said, “Almost, Maine was emotional phenomenon. Whether the audience was happy, sad, angry, or uncomfortable, they were always engaged with the stories and interested in the relationships. Abbey Wark created a heartwarming story in chilly Almost, Maine.”
