Lisa Jones feels out of sync with the world. After a delayed transatlantic flight leaves her missing an hour of her life she feels increasingly off-balance. However, a visit from a strange man prompts her to reclaim her lost hour, leading Lisa on a surreal and fantasy-filled journey through Dissocia, a world inhabited by a ragtag blend of colorful, humorous, friendly, brutal, and unsettling beings. But is it the hour that needs saving, or Lisa herself?

The Wonderful World of Dissocia comes alive on the American Repertory Theater’s mainstage through a cacophony of color, sound, and song. Follow Lisa as her adventures in Dissocia lead her to fantastical and strange encounters with talking goats, flying cars, musical polar bears, and, of all things, a hot dog cart.
