About the Play

Lisa Jones is on a journey. It's a colourful and exciting off-kilter trip 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.

Originally produced for the 2004 Edinburgh International Festival, The Wonderful World of Dissocia wowed critics and audiences alike, cleaning up at the Critics' Awards for Theatre in Scotland.

Production Notes

Castaway celebrates nineteen years of producing cutting edge drama with Neilson's delirious contemporary trip! A large and talented cast are delighted to bring you yet another modern classic. A crunching soundtrack and bold staging promise a hugely provocative evening.
