About the Show
Anthony Neilson's play about a young woman suffering from a dissociative disorder.
Lisa Jones embarks on a quest through a surreal world in order to recover the lost hour in her day. Her world filled, with insecurity guards, flying cars and singing polar bears, is equal parts amusing and terrifying to behold.
This psychedelic play is a poignant yet comedic take on the unpredictable and often cruel nature of the psyche.
"Harvey meets each twist of the script with steady aplomb, while the supporting ensemble furnish a vivid gallery of grotesques. I can understand why some might abandon this play at half time. But trust me: the experience is transformed if you stay."
"It’s a Mad Hatter-esque vision of mental illness that feels out of date, a literary alternative to the grimmer, less captivating reality. Still, it's a world that's intriguing to visit for an hour or two, before its bright lights are suddenly extinguished."
