Key City Public Theatre is proud to announce PlayFest 23, Port Townsend's "Festival of New Plays."
Offering a unique behind the scenes glimpse of how contemporary plays are created. With new one-act plays written by local playwrights, and performances of new works being workshopped by regionally and nationally known playwrights, open rehearsals, discussion panels and workshops, PlayFest is often referred to as "a theater lovers feast,” allowing patrons to sit-in on the process that brings working drafts & one-act play award winning scripts to the stage.
Will any of these plays make it to a KCPT mainstage show? Think Wolf at the Door, KCPT’s widely popular 2018 show, or this year's new holiday show Mercy Falls. When amazing work from national, local & regional playwrights is be presented, anything can happen.
This year’s featured playwright is Tira Palmquist, a renowned national playwright based in California. She will be workshopping her new play, Hold Steady. Joining her is New York playwright Henry Feldman, who is developing his new comedic script, Global Warming: A Comedy.
The local winners of the playwright’s competition are having their work showcased on the stage. They are: Christopher Clow with Coffin Nails, Doug Given with The Vortex, Kimberly Hinton with Red Tide, David Hundhausen with Kharma Descending, Lillie Moses with Stationary, and Deborah Wiese with The Cord.
All access passes start at just $35 and include all events. There will be two Playwriting Intensive Workshops for those who think they might have the chops to be a playwright with Tira Palmquist on Sunday, March 10th. Free to the public events such as open rehearsals, Afterwords, and a Playwriting Workshop will also take place.
