Come To Where I’m From: London

Our celebrated nationwide project arrives in London as the capital’s finest playwrights take us to the places they call home.

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.

But COME TO WHERE I’M FROM has never been done in London, until now…

We’re partnering with Tamasha on a series of London COME TO WHERE I’M FROM events across the city which will see some well known names alongside some of the most exciting new voices from the Tamasha Developing Artists programme.

We’ve got a series of events across the city with writers from North, South, East and West performing in their local theatres over the course of six summer days.

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, Tamasha, Royal Victoria Hall Foundation and The Garrick Club Charitable Trust production.
