The Wonderful World of Dissocia

By Anthony Neilson

Directed by Bec Martin-Williams

11-15 Mar, 8pm



“Life’s full of clatter, but none of it matters, only who’ll hold your paw when you die.”


In search of a lost hour that has tipped the balance of her life, Lisa Jones visits a surreal wonderland where she meets insecurity guards, a deviant scapegoat and a singing polar bear, all desperate to keep her there. Dissocia turns theatrical convention on its head in this tragicomic journey into the underworld of mental illness. Anthony Neilson’s fantastically inventive, wildly comic and deeply moving play is reimagined by Arcola Academy.
