Don’t leave me now

 

The Fondation Ipsen hosted a theatre performance about familial upheavals when a loved one is affected by Alzheimer’s disease or cerebral dementia (November 21stat 4pm). This play has been written by playwright Brian Daniels and directed by Jeni Draper, and explores with insight and humour the impact of early onset dementia on family life.

“Don’t Leave Me Now” written by playwright Brian Daniels and inspired by two 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)
