From 2012 – 2015 Indiana Jones and the extra chair show and residency toured to 6 venues including sold out shows at Brighton Dome and Southbank Centre. The residency program engaged over 200 participants and the 8 performances reached nearly 400 audience.


There was a residency at each venue working with local groups of up to 15 emerging writers. These participants were involved in the show at that venue, serving food with poetic memories and performing their own original family-themed poems. Some participants continued their journey becoming established writers and artists, including Sara Hirsch, Megan Beech and Helen Seymour.
