Come to Where I'm From comes to Middlesbrough Theatre

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.

Now 'Come to Where I'm From' visits Middlesbrough to invite four of the Boro’s finest playwrights to join this celebrated nationwide project by performing their own short plays about their home.

The playwrights contributing to the Middlesbrough performance are Tim Foley, Scarlet Pink, Gordon Steel, David Tuffnell.

The performance will be staged in “studio” format with the audience sharing the stage with the performers.
