Easter Week 3
Anthony Neilson’s critically acclaimed play The Wonderful World of Dissocia dramatises an acute experience of mental ill health. Lisa Jones’ life has been out-of-sync for a year now, impaired by a sense of hopelessness that will not abate. Luckily, the answer is simple. The answer lies in The Wonderful World of Dissocia. Act one follows Lisa’s spectacular and hilarious journey through Dissocia in pursuit of an hour of her life that she has lost. While the starkly counter-posed act two returns an audience to the upright position and depicts Lisa’s treatment on an ordinary psychiatric ward. By turns uproarious and arresting, Dissocia is an ecstatic, carnivalesque experience that is simultaneously politically profound.
