Come To Where I’m From

Morna Young has been one of just four writers chosen to represent Aberdeen in the Paines Plough event tonight which will map Britain’s most talented voices. Tickets can be bought from the APA Website.

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 Am From visits Aberdeen to invite four of the Granite City’s finest playwrights – Lesley Hart, Neil Cargil, Morna Young and Shane Strachen – to join this celebrated nationwide project by performing their own short plays about their home.
