When

Every day, all day Tuesday 15 September to Tuesday 13 October

Every Wednesday night hear new stories about the places that shape us. Four volumes of will premiere online over eight weeks in a celebration of our towns, cities and regions - and the people and communities that bring them to life. 

Come To Where I Am - Australia is the digital playwriting and performance program from Critical Stages Touring, Australia’s national touring theatre company, and Paines Plough, the UK’s leading independent touring theatre maker. 

Filmed and read by the writers themselves, and delivered in a series of ‘volumes’, these stories capture the way our connection to place and environment helps make us who we are. From the fantastic to the funny, the heartbreaking to the romantic, these are stories you’ve never heard before. 

Every fortnight from Wednesday, August 19th until September 30th, you can be part of a premiere event on the Critical Stages Touring facebook page where the films will be shown for the first time, joined by the authors and special guests. 

Join in the live-stream premiere on Facebook at these times:

5:30pm WST / 7:30pm AEST / 9:30pm NZST / 10:30am BST

The premiere will be available on Facebook for 24hours after the screening, and then the volume will be streamed from the Screening Room on the Critical Stages Touring website, and on the YouTube channel of Paines Plough.

The works will eventually be performed on stage in tandem with future touring productions from Critical Stages Touring when we can return to theatres once more.
