Sydney Theatre Company. Wharf 1. Until May 23.
Scottish playwright Antony Neilson’s play The Wonderful World Of Dissocia tells a story about a young woman’s descent into madness. In the first part of the play we follow Justine Clarke, who plays Lisa, entering the world of Dissocia, and encountering her illness in full, dangerous, exhilarating flight. After interval we see her going through the recovery process in hospital.
This was very provocative, involving and emotive theatre; at times hilariously funny and in other moments, gut-wrenchingly sad.
