June 10-28: The Wonderful World of Dissocia

Lisa Jones hasn’t been feeling like herself lately. She lost an hour while flying to London, and now she wants it back. Her journey to retrieve those missed minutes lands her in a fantastical world where cars fly, bears sing, and violence is not uncommon. But everything is not as it seems in this surreal, dark comedy about living and coping with mental illness. Presented by Theater Alliance, The Wonderful World of Dissocia by Anthony Neilsen is on stage at the Anacostia Playhouse through June 28. The show is recommended for mature audiences.
