This tiny, fictional town’s comic tale of love and loss in the chilly Northeast has charmed theater audiences almost everywhere: from Dubai to Korea, Australia to Germany, Canada to Mexico, and — you guessed it — five times in Maine. It also holds the crown for the play most produced in North American high schools, recently usurped from Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.” Now, it’s Louisville’s turn. Actor and musician Neil Brewer directs the Wayward Actors Company in this seasonally appropriate assemblage of nine short plays. Seating is limited at the intimate MeX Theater, where the cast will be large for the script, and the scenery will be mostly left to the imagination. It’ll only serve as a constant reminder, though, that in “Almost, Maine,” almost anything is possible. —Simon Isham
