In response to a rapidly changing world, where all touring and live performance is currently on hiatus, we are launching COME TO WHERE I AM – that’s right, a spin-off of our flagship project COME TO WHERE I’M FROM.
In partnership with theatres across the UK, 30 new short plays from writers about the places they call home will be shared with you as visual-audio pieces and then performed at our partner venues when they reopen.
All donations made to this project will go directly towards employing writers to deliver more excellent new writing during COVID-19.
Check the full series out on our YouTube channel.

For certain groups who may find it more difficult or even impossible to access digital content, we are offering a caller service – live readings of the plays over the phone, allowing people with little or no online access to experience these plays. We are working with some exciting TV celebs to provide this caller service including David Bradley, Julie Hesmondhalgh, Lisa Hammond and Sally Dynevor.
