Come To Where I'm From

Come To Where I'm From is a collection of over 160 audio plays written by playwrights about 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 were performed by the playwrights themselves, coming home to tell their tale.

Now you can listen to this amazing collection of short plays through the Come To Where I'm From app. Search the map for plays near you or find your favourite playwright in the plays index.

You'll find a huge range of playwrights from Olivier Award winners to first timers reading their own plays about home towns stretching from Edinburgh to Ipswich to the Isle of Wight.

A theatrical tapestry of the UK, woven by writers asking if home is really where the heart is.
