Poet’s play about finding community in rural Maine is heartwarmingly sweet

Portland Stage’s world premiere production, Sweet Goats & Blueberry Senoritas, is a heartwarming, sweet and funny piece about the community that outsiders build with Maine natives and the joys and heartaches they share.

It’s a story about connections – the connections we can’t break, no matter how much we want to, and the ones we hold on to because they are our lifelines. It’s a relevant and timely production as some find it difficult to reconnect after nearly three years of being two meters apart.

Written by Bethel resident Richard Blanco and playwright Vanessa Garcia and directed by Sally Wood, the production is an awe-inspiring performance that sent audiences out of the theater on Saturday to reflect, laugh and share stories of their own experiences settling in the Pine to tell Tree State . It also gives theatergoers a glimpse into the Cuban culture of playwrights.
