This Is Where We Came In is a 1990 children's play by British playwright Alan Ayckbourn. It is about three storytellers, Great Aunt Repetitus, Uncle Erraticus, Uncle Oblivious, who trap six players in twisted re-interpretations of fairy tales. It was originally presented as a two-parter shown on Saturday mornings, where the plays could be seen out of order, but the two parts were put together and made into a single event in Christmas 1991.
This Is Where We Came In is a chronicle of a group of misfits who have fallen victim to their story-teller overloard's fierce control.
