COME TO WHERE I AM 2020

Our headline act – ‘She Left Home For A While’ by Simon Stephens, performed by David Bradley

COME TO WHERE I AM is a digital project conceived by Paines Plough in response to the closure of theatres during COVID-19.

It is, of course, a spin-off of our flagship project COME TO WHERE I’M FROM.

In partnership with theatres across the UK, we have already commissioned 30+ new short plays from writers about the places they call home and their relationship to home at this time. These will be shared with you as visual-audio pieces and then performed at our partner venues when they reopen.

The self-filmed pieces, from a different part of the country each week, will be available on our YouTube channel with a request for donations.

All donations made to this project will go directly towards employing writers to deliver more excellent new writing during COVID-19.

Please consider donating anything you can afford to this very important cause. We need to keep telling stories. 

Thank you!
