The Gaslight Theater will host its first production of Maine’s bicentennial year: “Last Gas” by John Cariani, directed by Lucille Rioux.

Production times are set for 7:30 p.m. March 13, 14, 20 and 21 and at 2 p.m. March 15th at Hallowell City Hall Auditorium, 1 Winthrop St. in Hallowell.

Nat Paradis is a Red Sox loving part-time dad who manages Paradis’ Last Convenient Store, the last convenient place to get gas — or anything — before the Canadian border to the north and the North Maine Woods to the west. When an old flame returns to town, Nat gets a chance to rekindle a romance he gave up on years ago. But sparks fly as he’s forced to choose between new love and old.

“Last Gas” takes a hilarious and heart-breakingly hard look at love lost and found, and at what it means to “get back to happy.”
