About This Show

Playwrights Tracey Keeling and Mary Cimino draw from Nabakov’s novel, Lolita, and the lore surrounding Lilith, said to be the original demon/seductress who was cast out of the Garden of Eden. The two archetypes of “nymphet” and “seductress/demon” raise many questions in regards to the idea of female sexual power. Lilita is an unusual, sometimes bizarre, tale involving not only the theme of pedophilia, but also society’s responsibility and/or involvement in one of the most complex issues puzzling contemporary society. It follows the adolescent development of a young girl in a world where sex breeds guilt and guilt breeds fear and all the dues are paid. The production is part of the New York International Fringe Festival.
