Anthony Neilson's The Wonderful World of Dissocia :)

Anthony Neilson's play The Wonderful World of Dissocia explores journey narrative and mental illness-- it centers on the adventures of Lisa Jones in travels to Dissocia; this world parallel's Oz and Wonderland only filled with more Humor, Sex, Violence.
The play begins with Lisa Jones sitting alone in her London Flat, where she given a mission to revcover her "missing Hour" by the cornel and is then is teleported into this magical world where she confesses the characters, " draw to her like the sirens." The play has an interesting twist and she returns from her adventures in Dissocia only to discover her own crippling illness within her head; it is essentially the perfect example of a narrative journey in literature.
