The play will be a celebration of 20 years of the Stadium of Light. We’d like you to tell us about your experiences relating to the stadium

Some of the stories will be incorporated into the play, Wise Men Say, so your words will come alive, performed by professional actors in venues like Durham Gala, Customs House, Washington Arts Centre, the newly-opened Peacock in Sunderland (formerly the Londonderry), as well as touring to London to the South East Supporters Branch.

Your tale can be funny, sad, heartwarming, jaw-dropping – we don’t mind, we want to read them all.
