COME TO WHERE I'M FROM visits Hull to invite four of the town’s finest playwrights, Tom Wells, Lydia Marchant, Maureen Lennon and Joe Hakim, to join our celebrated nationwide project.
Since 2010 writers from across the UK have returned to their home towns to pen plays about the places that shaped them. At theatres from Bristol to Belfast, Cardiff to Coventry and Nottingham to Newcastle, these plays have been performed by the playwrights themselves, coming home to tell their tale. Together they create a theatrical tapestry of the nation – a playwright’s guide to Great Britain.
You can listen to more than 120 playwrights read their plays on the COME TO WHERE I'M FROM app, free to download from the App Store.
A Paines Plough and Hull Truck Theatre production as part of Grow Festival.
