Don’t Leave Me Now’ explores the impact of young onset dementia on two very different
families. Rachael Dixey cared for her partner with dementia for seven years. Cindy Toulman visited her husband in his care home every day for ten years.
‘Don’t Leave Me Now’ was inspired by these two real life stories. With authenticity, insight and humour, playwright, Brian Daniels weaves the strands of these stories together to create a documentary style production highlighting the emotions, dilemmas and challenges experienced by people affected by dementia.
‘Don’t Leave Me Now’ was written by Brian Daniels, Artistic Director of New End Theatre
Beyond. The playreadings will be performed by a cast of five professional actors and each performance will be followed by a post-show discussion and audience Q & A with the actors, playwright and Rachael Dixey.
Rachael Dixey’s book, ‘Our Dementia Dairy: Irene, Alzheimer’s and Me’ will be on sale and Rachael will be happy to sign copies.
