On a journey in search of one lost hour that tipped the balance of her life, Lisa Jones meets the funny, friendly and brutal inhabitants of the wonderful world she finds herself in, Dissocia. Written and directed by Neilson, the play is performed by original cast members James Cunningham, Christine Entwistle, Alan Francis, Amanda Hadingue, Jack James, Clair Little, Matthew Pidgeon and Barnaby Power. The play is co-produced by Plymouth’s Drum Theatre and Glasgow’s Tron Theatre.
First night critics had mixed reactions to the piece, which they said was superbly performed but disjointed and certainly absurd. While some admired the bold choices made by Neilson in his writing and direction and the Beckettian qualities of the second half, some found the piece sentimental and rather pointless.
