Don’t Leave Me Now written by Brian Daniels is a play inspired by two real stories, exploring with insight and humour the impact of early onset dementia on family life. Where does love end and duty begin? Or does it?
“The play is subtly powerful, sympathetic and sharp, sad and funny… where dementia is the villain, words are priceless” – Howard Jacobson, Booker Prize winning author (New Statesman 2016)

It has been endorsed by all major Dementia Charities including Dementia UK, The Alzheimer’s Society, Dementia Pathfinders, Cruse Bereavement Care, Hospice UK (formerly the National Council for Palliative Care.
