As journeyman Adam, Tim Dowd has a lot of weight to carry in this piece. Dowd has the youthful quality to his character, but lacks levels. He seemed to make every woe a big deal. Adam La Faci as Creature Man brings a unique presence to the trail. His story is strong and his chemistry with Adam are some of the best moments in the show. La Faci has an overall intensity as Creature Man that needed to be lessened to land the more sentimental moments.
Director Eric Parness brings a great vision to the piece. He is able to avoid monotony with the simplicity of the space. While evoking the atmosphere of the trail could have been taken even further, what he presented was grand.
North to Maine is a diamond in the rough. It’s a piece that has great potential that deserves a larger audience. If the spirit of the trail can be explored further with fluff removed, North to Maine can be something special.
