Amazing. I highly recommend seeing this show. The story told was both funny and heartfelt. Wonderful acting, very honest. It really had me thinking too.
Not only was the acting great, but the set was glorious. The costumes were perfectly fun....continued

How stimulating! The story was beautiful. The acting was very touching. Honest, on point and good comedic delivery where appropriate. The set and costumes were marvelous! Detailed and very fitting for the whimsical plot line. I will probably...continued

I've often admired the risky work that Profiles Theatre dares to put on. But out of everything I've seen there this is by far the ballsiest. Dissocia tells the story of a mentally unwell young woman named Lisa Jones and depicts her inner...continued

Clearly this production is an acquired taste, not for everyone. One of the reviewers here says he left at intermission as 'there did not seem to be a point' to the admittedly perverse mayhem and Python-esque cacophony. Here's why I never leave a...continued

A very entertaining play: full of contagious energy and humor, very imaginative set ideas. Painful finale, but such is life...

This was such a wonderful and unique experience in the theatre. So funny, colorful and imaginative in the first half and then touching and moving in the second half. Great cast, beautifully staged. I've never seen anything quite like it and am...continued

Oh my goodness! This was a great piece of work brilliantly brought to the stage! I just love the creativity of the profiles theater. The way they make use of the stage just amazes me. One of the funniest plays I've seen. And such a true to life...continued

The acting was mesmorizing. The cast put everything they had into it - the set was fantastic. It was so frantic and high. To be fair, this was the 2nd time I saw the show and I viewed it a little differently, knowing the resolution. I hope to go...continued

The play was well written. The play was well acted. The play does a very good job of drawing you in.

Wonderful. It could have been really stupid, but because of the skill level of writing and the stellar skill level of the actors, it was incredibly professional and absolutely entertaining, and I kept thinking, "I could truly imagine this on...continued

Loved it! This was a hilarious production and the acting was top-notch. I thoroughly enjoyed this play and would highly recommend it. Totally absurd and at the same time thought provoking.

The first act was a marvelous romp and send up of "Alice in Wonderland". The second act was more intense and introspective. How brave of Profiles to attempt a difficul play like this.

WOW! Overall, the more time there has been between the production and the present, the more I like the show. This, I think, shows that the script was amazingly written and had very deep themes that take some time to digest. However, while in the...continued

This production could be described as a perverted, disturbing, Alice In Wonderland-like play. I actually left at the intermission, which I have never ever done before.

Interesting play, but not as provocative as I expected.

The acting was good for the most part, and I thought the first 2 characters introduced were the best. Overall though, some of the scenes dragged on a bit and lost their steam as a...continued

Some elements of design for this show were very innovative. The set was surprising and the costumes were very well designed. The lighting served the play, but looking back on it a week later from when I saw it, there was nothing that stood out....continued

highly imaginative writing but had a slow dull ending. Too much repitition at the end and to no useful effect. That being said, the rest of the writing was awesome. The acting was fantastic as was the set and really everything.
