This is a must see show devised by three talented young actresses giving voice to three iconic women in literature. Lolita (Lolita), Daisy (The Great Gatsby), and Ophelia (Hamlet) find themselves in a space where they are free from the restraints placed on their characters in their stories and through these characters, these young actresses explore restraints placed on women in our society. All three actresses, Leah Artenian, Savannah Gilmore, and Sophia Brackenridge are excellent and I would highly recommend this captivating production. ... full review

An inspired idea, three powerful performances, great writing, great production, and entertaining thought-provoking theatre. You'll never read "Lolita", "The Great Gatsby" or "Hamlet" the same way again.... full review

A fascinating exploration into the psyche of three famous ladies from the Western canon, Lolita, Daisy, Ophelia: A Love Story is at turns hilarious, whimsical, thoughtful, and devastating. As these characters learn about each other, they learn more about themselves as well, and manage to stake out new territory away from the patriarchal voice that controls these iconic works. You won't be able to read these stories in the same way again!... full review

I really wanted to like this play. Three quintessential literary characters find themselves outside of their stories and shoved together in some sort of literary limbo. What a cool concept! I really wanted to like this walking in, and I still want to like it after leaving, but I can’t quite get there. Savannah Gilmore as Daisy from The Great Gatsby, was stunning. She was period specific from her costume to her sensually languid voice, to her drawn out, teasing reveal of her misery. She fit her story. Sophia Brackenridge as Ophelia from “Hamlet” also fits her story and period. With these two firmly placed in their respective worlds it was jarring that Leah Artenian as Lolita, from Lolita, came across as more of a modern day teen instead of a... full review

This is one of my favorite shows at this years Fringe. It's devised so beautifully. The story it tells is poignant and topical and unfortunately necessary in today's society. This show needs to be put up again or extended!! ... full review
