PORT TOWNSEND — This Friday evening, the public is invited to a reception with six local playwrights whose work has been chosen for Key City Public Theatre's Festival of New Plays.

The Port Townsend Arts Commission, with chairman Stan Rubin, will host the free event at 5 p.m. at the Key City Playhouse, 419 Washington St.

After light refreshments, Port Townsend Deputy Mayor Kris Nelson will make presentations to writers Deborah Daline, Henry Feldman, David Hundhausen, Jack O'Connor, Deborah Wiese and D.D. Wigley, whose one-act plays will premiere during the festival March 6-16.

Daline's “Somebodies & Sylvia,” Feldman's “It's Just Coffee,” Wigley's “Field Guide,” Hundhausen's “Night of Intrigue,” O'Connor's “People Small” and Wiese's “Funeral Home, The Musical” will all come to the stage of the Key City Playhouse or the Pope Marine Building in downtown Port Townsend during the Festival of New Plays.

Formerly known as the Playwrights' Festival, the annual event is in its 18th year.

This year's special guest is playwright and Rutgers University instructor Richard Dresser, who will teach two playwriting workshops.
