Don't Leave Me Now

Don't Leave Me Now is a play with five professional actors, professionally directed and lasts around 75 minutes.  

It explores the impact on two very different families when they are hit by a medical bombshell - in this case early onset dementia.  What is the effect on family life?  What is the dilemma of the family carer and the adult children?  Does love ever end and duty begin?  The play also raises and can be a discussion point around the Mental Capacity Act.  

More than 80 performances to date with outstanding feedback and evaluations from organisation's including NHS Trusts, Hospices, Universities, Libraries, Community Centres and Theatres.  It has been endorsed by all major UK dementia charities including Dementia UK and the Dementia Action Alliance.
