What it Means to be a Mainer

Maine at Work: Augusta

Within a meticulously researched performance, Maine at Work takes historical documents and characters, humor, little known facts, thought-provoking tales (tall and otherwise), and perspectives from real Mainers to show the pattern of work in Maine. It's designed to be fun and to get Mainers thinking about the issues. Join us at a reception and the premiere performance and discussion, which will open a statewide series.
