For the 6th year, Key City Public Theatre in Port Townsend, WA celebrates International Women's Day by presenting Here, There & Everywhere, a program of monologues by an international slate of women playwrights, with performances on March 8, 14 & 15, as part of PlayFest 18.
The theme for this year's HT&E is 'Mothers & Daughters' and presented works come primarily from the International Centre for Women Playwrights four volume series "Mother/Daughter Monolouges". KCPT is especially pleased that all the featured works this year are by members of the International Centre for Women Playwrights.

Here, There & Everywhere is directed by KCPT's Literary Manager, Mara Lathrop. The selection committee this year was Mara Lathrop, Marcia Pearlstein and Denise Winter.
Here, There & Everywhere is an annual fundraising event to benefit Jefferson County, WA charities that support women and girls, including Dove House, The Fund for Women and Girls, Working Wardrobe and the local chapter of the AAUW's Scholarship Fund. This year, KCPT is raising money for our own scholarship fund, which provides tuition assistance and cash awards for the further study of Theater Arts. All monies raised by HT&E will be earmarked for scholarships for women and girls.
Says KCPT's Artistic Director, Denise Winter, "This is one of KCPT's most popular annual events and our audiences truly enjoy the wide variety of stories, writing styles, and points of view represented. As always, it is an honor and a pleasure to present so much fine writing by so many talented writers and to support organizations in our community that do so much for local women.. As for our title 'Here, There & Everywhere' -- it is the answer to the question, "Where are all the women playwrights?"
In addition to Here, There & Everywhere, KCPT's PlayFest 18 features productions and readings of 6 new one act plays by local playwrights, sponsored by the Port Townsend Arts Commission, workshops of new full lengths by Kim Hinton, Jeni Mahoney and Richard Dresser, writing workshops by Richard Dresser, the InstaPlay writing/performing challenge, post play discussions after every performance event and more.
