“Terrific debut play from Hannah Nixon about a teenager who is the focus of unwanted male attention. Papercut Theatre’s smart staging is blisteringly acted and handles the gap between what the adults say and what they mean really well. Highly recommended.”


Sixty years after Nabokov’s Lolita, meet Lola. She’s eighteen, full of rage and has extremely large breasts. This time our leading lady won’t be silenced.

In her debut play H.L Nixon explores the feminine form and the prejudices and assumptions that society places on women. With the male gaze acting as a constant dim in the background that threatens to overwhelm her, Lola takes drastic action. Her act of violence will leave you asking; what do we do with unwanted attention? What does it feel like to strike back? And why don’t we do it more often?

Critic reviews

Lola is an exceptional piece of theatre by some exciting new talent

The Upcoming
