Brian Daniels

“I am proud to have written ‘Fighting For Life. This moving and emotional story has to be told. It’s about the challenges we could all face in older life, whether ourselves or in caring for elderly relatives. In playing the part of ‘Jim’ in the production, I feel that I have got to know him and ‘Joan’ and their relationship with each other and their children very well. I am very proud to be associated with the play and with the Findlay family” – Brian Daniels, 2018
