About the show:“Thornton Wilder crossed with The Twilight Zone. When the northern lights appear in the sky and the characters shine with the joyfulness of love, it’s hard not to believe that the wintry air of northern Maine isn’t the cure for heartache,” said The New York Post. A valentine to would-be lovers.
