In response to a rapidly changing world, where all touring and live performance is currently on hiatus, Pains Plough are launching COME TO WHERE I AM – that’s right, a spin-off of their flagship project COME TO WHERE I’M FROM in associated with Reading Rep Theatre.
In partnership with theatres across the UK, 30 new short plays from writers about the places they are inhabiting right now, will be shared with you as visual-audio pieces and then performed at our partner venues when they reopen.
The brilliant partner theatres include Derby Theatre,Eastern Angles, Open Clasp Theatre Company Newcastle, Pitlochry Festival Theatre, Reading Rep Theatre, Sheffield TheatresandTheatre by the Lake Keswick.
All of the new plays will be made available online and, for certain groups who may find it more difficult or even impossible to access digital content, we are offering a caller service – live readings of the plays over the phone, allowing people with little or no online access to experience these plays. We are working with some exciting TV celebs to provide this caller service including David Bradley, Julie Hesmondhalgh, Lisa Hammond andSally Dynevor – with more still to be announced.
Check back soon for release dates.
