About This Show

An adaptation of Lolita and Humber’s forbidden love.

Humbert Humbert is a middle-aged academic who, whilst a lodger at the home of a suburban American mother, becomes sexually obsessed by the woman’s under-aged daughter. Humbert’s loss of his childhood-love instilled in him a disturbing erotic passion ? a passion that is now projected onto the troubled ?nymphet’ Lolita, who herself has undergone a sort of ?arrested development’, following the death of her father. This up-to-date adaptation of Nabokov’s 1955 novel is at once provocative, comical, moving, tragic, and very discomforting.
