Written by Anthony Neilson

What would you do if you lost an hour from your day? How far would you go to rescue what you’ve lost?
In search of a lost hour that has tipped the balance of her life, Lisa Jones is on a quest through a surreal world, filled with insecurity guards, flying cars, singing polar bears and wild-goose chases. The inhabitants of Dissocia are a curious blend of the funny, the friendly and the downright brutal.
Anthony Neilson’s cult play is a poignant and comical delve into the nature of mental illness.
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'.
"There is no playwright writing in English today who is quite as electrifying... as Anthony Neilson." The Guardian
Presented by Theatre Royal Stratford East.
