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)

Don’t Leave Me Now has been commissioned by Vida Healthcare for Dementia Awareness Week 2018. 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.

Running time: 75 minutes plus a post show discussion with the Director, Cast and local dementia care experts.

Tickets are free of charge however numbers are limited so booking is essential. A suggested donation of £5 per ticket would be welcomed on the day – all proceeds will be donated to Alzheimer’s Society.
