Key City’s PlayFest continues with one-act plays, workshops

PORT TOWNSEND — The 21st annual PlayFest, a production featuring one-act plays written by local playwrights, kicks off Thursday at the Key City Playhouse.

PlayFest 21, sponsored by Key City Public Theatre, features performances, open rehearsals, discussion panels and workshops in an effort to bare the inner workings of the creative process, according to organizers.

This year’s featured playwright is Wendy MacLeod, who will workshop her new play, “Juan Deere.”

Tickets are $10 for the one-act readings, $15 for the one-act productions and $20 for the “Evening with Wendy MacLeod.”

A $35 Festival Pass grants attendees access to all events, while a $90 Writer’s Pass includes all events and enrollment in a playwriting intensive workshop with MacLeod. There also will be free-to-the-public events.

Events Thursday include a festival happy hour from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. and one-act readings from 7:30 p.m. to 9 p.m.
