About this show

This darkly comic play follows Julia, a rebellious Stanford graduate student researching her thesis, and Danny, a hitchhiking teenage runaway she picks up, as together they retrace novelist and lepidopterist Vladimir Nabokov's actual 1941 roadtrip from New York to Stanford. A series of cross country adventures ensues, as they confront their own dark pasts and discover what really causes a chrysalis to transform into a butterfly. Lolita Roadtrip marks Trevor Allen's second world premiere with San Jose Stage Company, following the 2005 hit Tenders in the Fog.
