Matthew Seager was first inspired to write 'In Other Words' after facilitating 10 weeks of sensory stimulations workshops in a dementia care home whilst in his last year at Leeds University.

In Other Words will be touring the UK in February 2019. For a full list of the dates and venues click here.
