“In honor of the shortest month of the year,” said PT Shorts director Nancy Boysen, “I decided to sidestep the traditional February topic of Valentine’s Day and love, and tackle a different topic: that of time.”
Along with veteran actors Dalana and David Schroeder, Boysen will offer an hour of stories read aloud:
■ Ray Bradbury’s “Another Fine Mess,” about the reappearance of the comedy team Laurel and Hardy at the scene of one of their funniest movies;
■ “Hopscotch,” also by Bradbury, looks at a girl’s rites of passage as she celebrates her 17th birthday;
■ Bradbury’s “Season of Disbelief,” about a woman in her 70s who discovers that clinging to the past may be a fool’s pastime;
■ “Time Sweepers” by Ursula Wills-Jones, a humorous fable about the tiny creatures tasked with sweeping up the time humans waste.
PT Shorts, presented by Key City Public Theatre, coincides with the Port Townsend Gallery Walk every first Saturday of the month.
