Chantilly High Presents ‘Almost, Maine’ And ‘Love/Sick’

Students from Chantilly High are performing two plays, “Almost, Maine” and “Love/Sick”. Both of these plays are by playwright John Cariani. “Almost, Maine” explores love and loss in a remote, almost-town in winter, and “Love/Sick” hilariously delves into the pain and joy of being in love.

Performing in “Almost, Maine” and “Love/Sick” are (from left) Cullen Kendrick, Jenna Antonacci, Amro Ibrahim, Shaun Trinh, Elise McCue, and Alex Yee.

According to Centre View, “Showtimes for “Almost, Maine” are Wednesday and Friday, Nov. 6 and 8, at 7 p.m.; and “Love/Sick” takes the stage Thursday and Saturday, Nov. 7 and 9, at 7 p.m. Tickets are $8, students; $10, general admission, at the door or via The shows feature a cast and crew of 65 people in total. And what makes them unique is that each play comprises nine individual two-person vignettes that stand on their own.”

Director Shannon Spicer said, “This is a completely different directing process because each scene has no relation to the other scenes. So I can only work with two actors at a time – which makes for an interesting rehearsal schedule. Things are coming along great. I chose to do two plays because we have a wonderfully talented and diverse group of actors who can pull off these two, contrasting plays. I love directing contemporary pieces because I feel they really reach out to the high-school audience, as well as the community.”
