Come to Where I'm From: London
Presented by Paines Plough and Tamasha
Supported by London Writers' Week

Since 2010, Come to Where I'm From has seen more than 100 writers from across the UK writing 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.

Now Come to Where I'm From invites London playwrights to tell their stories for the first time. In a partnership between Tamasha and Paines Plough and supported by London Writers' Week we present a series of London Come to Where I'm From events across the city representing North, South, East and West London which will see some well-known names alongside some of the most exciting new voices from the Tamasha Developing Artists programme.

As one of the most diverse cities in the world, London is teeming with stories that reveal both authentic local experiences and cross-cultural narratives that connect us to a wider world. Our Tamasha Developing Artists writers have a wealth of these to offer and where better to present them than as part of the ever-growing rich map of writing that is Come to Where I'm From.

You can listen to plays from around the UK online at or via the Come to Where I'm From app available free from the app store.
