After having a couple of months “down” time, Sanford Maine Stage players are deep in plans for this year! Their first ZOOM production will be Tragedians Anonymous by Rebecca Salomonsson, and will be performed April 30 and May 1. In this play, four tragic characters who are forced to remain in isolation until further notice (due to the pandemic) join a self help group, virtually of course! Tragic characters Ophelia, Lady Anne, Romeo, and Juliet seek support from the Tragedians Anonymous group led by Prospero, where the meeting’s theme is “Identify those who wrong us and those who we wrong.” In this laugh-out-loud comedy, they are forced to face their fatal flaws in therapy sessions with each other. If you think you’d be interested in being in this production via Zoom, contact for further information and the cast of characters list.
