Since 2010 writers from across the British Isles have returned to their home-towns to pen plays about the places that shaped them. These plays are performed by the playwrights themselves, coming home to tell their tale.  Now COME TO WHERE I’M FROM visits The Fair City to invite five of the city’s finest playwrights to join this celebrated project.
