Take a trip to a curious land unlike any other. The innovative Scottish playwright Anthony Neilson has created The Wonderful World of Dissocia, where young everywoman Lisa Jones embarks on a quest to recover a missing piece of herself. There she discovers that nothing is as it seems. A cunning mix of fantasy, horror, comedy, music, and drama, the play entertains while it asks difficult questions. How do you make sense of a seemingly senseless world? What is the nature of reality? How do you stay connected when there is nothing to hold on to?
The Wonderful World of Dissocia will be familiar to those who love Alice in Wonderland and The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, but it also features dark, disturbing, and traumatic events. Audience discretion is advised.
We hope to see you there!
