Key City Public Theatre presents a reading of short works by women playwrights both local and international on Saturday, March 14 at the Key City Playhouse, 419 Washington St. The program begins at 2:30 p.m. and is a benefit for the Domestic Violence/Sexual Assault Program of Jefferson County.

Monologues and ten-minute plays by writers from Port Townsend to Romania will highlight the event directed by DJ Adams and featuring local actors David Speck, Michelle Hensel, Denise Fleener, Heather Paulson, Charles Duncan, Cheron Dudley, Patricia Earnest and Sarah Ohman.

The program is made possible by a generous grant from the International Centre for Women Playwrights, which is sponsoring similar readings around the world this month.

“It is a pleasure to partner with the International Centre for Women Playwrights to bring eight exciting and talented world voices to our stage. This is a wonderful way for KCPT to help Port Townsend celebrate Women's History month.” says Denise Winter, KCPT Artistic Director.

Local playwrights include Mara Lathrop (“FantasyLand”) and Judith Glass Collins (“Of Poisoned Pens and Palates”). Also representing Washington is Shane Shipley of Issaquah (“The Governor & Her Mother”).

Other pieces by American writers are Kathleen Coudle King of Grand Forks, North Dakota (“Plantanos”), Carolyn Gage of Portland, Maine (“The Parmachene Belle”), and Constance Congdon of Amherst, Massachusetts (“True North”).

International playwrights are Margaret McSeveney of Glasgow, Scotland (“Marilyn”) and Lucia Verona of Bucharest, Romania (“Don Juan’s Wife”).

A reception with some of the playwrights will follow the performance. The box office and lobby bar will open one hour prior to the curtain.

Suggested donation is $10. Tickets will be available at the door, or by calling the KCPT offices at 360-379-0195

The International Centre for Women Playwrights is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting women playwrights around the world.
