Story

We're celebrating 10 years of COME TO WHERE I'M FROM by raising at least £25,000 to help the playwrights of the future flourish.

Paines Plough is the national theatre of new plays. We discover the very best new talent and help them develop their craft. Then we produce their plays on tour the length and breadth of the UK and around the world.

Since 2010 we've invited more than 160 playwrights from across the UK to write plays about the places that shaped them. From first-time writers to Olivier Award winners, those writers have woven myriad magical tales of our nation in all its glory, vibrancy, diversity and idiosyncrasy. The plays are all available free-to-listen on the COME TO WHERE I'M FROM app.

As we approach the 10th anniversary of this remarkable project, we're looking to the future. We're aiming to raise at least £25,000 to enable our new Artistic Directors, Charlotte Bennett and Katie Posner, to continue Paines Plough's vital work in discovering and developing the playwriting talent of the future.

With your help we can ensure a new generation of playwrights are writing world-beating plays for years to come.

Wish I could make the gala, but more than happy to support such a great cause even in a small way.
