    The Wonderful World of Dissocia

    Presented by at Chelsea Theatre Works

    October 30 - November 29, 2009


    The Wonderful World of Dissocia

    Lisa Jones is on a journey in search of one lost hour that has tipped the balance of her life. The inhabitants of the wonderful world she finds herself in - Dissocia - are a curious blend of the funny, the friendly, and the brutal. As Neilson himself puts is, "If you like Alice in Wonderland, but there's not enough sex and violence in it, then Dissocia is the show for you." This is a hugely original play, both magical and moving, that confirmed Anthony Neilson as one of the major voices in British theatre.

    "delirious fun.....
    behind the knockabout comedy, uplifting song and dazzling fantasy is a disturbing edge of danger ......
    a tremendously brave piece of stagecraft that carries both insight and heart." -Variety

      The Alice in Wonderland comparison is terrific. I was trying to imagine what an audience would think if they saw Alice performed on stage, without being alerted ahead of time about what they were... Expand
