Now in its 22nd year, Key City Public Theatre’s PT PlayFest 22 is a theatre-lover’s feast over two weekends, March 2-11, featuring new one-act plays written by local playwrights, and performances of new scripts being workshopped by regionally and nationally known playwrights. PlayFest 22 features performances, open rehearsals, discussion panels, and workshops, allowing patrons a look deep into the creative processes that generate the art that they enjoy year-round at the theatre.

This year’s featured playwright is Jeni Mahoney, a stalwart regular of the festival. She will be workshopping her new play, Mercy Falls. Joining her is Richard Dresser, who will be workshopping his new play, Wolf at the Door, which will make its world premiere at KCPT on April 13.

Six local winners of the Port Townsend Arts Commission’s One-Act Play competition are having their work showcased in the festival. They are: Christopher Clow with “An” Means “Without,” Judith Glass-Collins with Family Photographs, Angela Gyurko with Triangles, Mark Rose with The Maharini, Deborah Wiese with Overboard, and D.D. Wigley with The “Crickets” Episode: a Semi-Documentary Play.
