Don’t Leave Me Now: Greenwich Carers Centre play explores dementia

Charlton House Stables is hosting a play about dementia

Greenwich Carers Centre, at Charlton House Stables, has been in touch about a performance happening on Thursday 23 May…

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 discussion and audience Q & A with the actors, playwright and Rachael Dixey.

Rachael Dixey’s book, ‘Our Dementia Diary: Irene, Alzheimer’s and Me’ will be on sale and Rachael will be happy to sign copies.

There are two performances, at 3pm and 6.30pm. Greenwich Carers Centre is at The Stables, 76 Hornfair Road, SE7 7BD. Tickets are £5. Book on 020 8102 9654 or email info[at]greenwichcarerscentre.org.
