The Corn Exchange/The Abbey co-production of Lolita, presented in a Commedia dell'Arte style, is a high-energy production of Lolita – one of the most startling, original and controversial stories of our time.

A sensation when it was published almost fifty years ago, Lolita recounts the passion of Humbert Humbert, a wily European academic, for Lolita, the young daughter of his New England landlady. It trails his desire from state to state in a tragic tale of love, obsession, betrayal and murder.
