Come To Where I'm From

Buy tickets

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.

Now COME TO WHERE I'M FROM visits Hull to invite four of the city’s finest playwrights to join this celebrated nationwide project by performing their own short plays about their home.

Our writers are:

  • Tom Wells
  • Lydia Marchant
  • Maureen Lennon
  • Joe Hakim

In the lead up to COME TO WHERE I’M FROM: HULL you can listen to more than 130 playwrights read their plays on the COME TO WHERE I'M FROM app, free to download here.

A Paines Plough and Hull Truck Theatre production as part of Grow Festival.
