About the Play
“Don’t Leave Me Now” written by playwright Brian Daniels and inspired by real stories, explores 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” is 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).

The play has been widely performed throughout the UK and Northern Ireland in theatres, hospitals, hospices, community centres, libraries, care homes, churches, mosques, synagogues, universities and schools. The play has been seen in the U.K. Parliament.

Don’t Leave Me Now is a valuable educational tool and resource for in-house staff awareness training.
