Profiles Presents THE WONDERFUL WORLD OF DISSOCIA 3/26-5/10

Profiles Theatre continues its 20th Anniversary Season with the acclaimed new dark comedy The Wonderful World of Dissocia by Anthony Neilson, directed by Profiles Associate Artistic Director Darrell W. Cox. The production runs March 26 - May 10, 2009, at Profiles Theatre, 4147 N. Broadway. The press opening is Friday, March 27, 2009, at 8:00 p.m.

The Wonderful World of Dissocia is a colorful and exciting off-kilter trip that follows Lisa Jones in search of one lost hour that has tipped the balance of her life. The inhabitants of the wonderful world she finds herself in - Dissocia - are a curious blend of the funny, the friendly and the brutal. This is a hugely original play, both magical and moving, that confirmed Anthony Neilson as one of the major voices in contemporary British theatre.

The Wonderful World Of Dissocia received its lauded World Premiere at the Edinburgh International Festival and went on to win every major category at the Critics' Awards for Theatre in Scotland including Best New Play and Best Production. Neilson's award-winning play subsequently played to sold-out houses and wowed audiences and critics alike at The National Theatre of Scotland and at the Royal Court in London.

The cast of The Wonderful World of Dissocia features Profiles' ensemble members Somer Benson The Thugs, Things We Said Today), Eric Burgher (Men of Tortuga) and Joe Jahraus (Things We Said Today). The cast also includes Jeremy Lee Cudd, Jessie Fisher, Sarah Loveland, Bob Pries, and Barb Stasiw.
