Level 2 & 3 Performing Arts Students from Weston College present The Wonderful World Of Dissocia by Anthony Neilson.

Lisa Jones is on a journey, a quest to recover a lost hour from her life. She undertakes this mission in an exciting and vibrant world: a world inhabited by bizarre characters. The inhabitants of this wonderful world she finds herself in – Dissocia – are a curious blend of the funny, the friendly and the brutal, including a talking Polar Bear, Insecurity Guards and the Ominous Black Dog King.

As Neilson himself puts it, “if you like Alice in Wonderland but there’s not enough sex and violence in it, then Dissocia is the show for you”.

Originally produced for the Edinburgh International Festival in 2004, The Wonderful World of Dissocia is a funny, energetic, yet ultimately heart breaking play, identifying Anthony Nelison as one of the core voices in contempoary British Theatre.
