BEST LOVE IN A COLD CLIMATE

To Russia With Love is a SiLo Classic Adaptations project that supports young directors. It consists of two new 40-minute works and is on tonight at the SiLo Theatre. First up is Where Are You My Only One? Written and directed by Vanessa Rhodes, the play, starring David Aston, Nicola Murphy and Kate Bartlett, explores the relationship between a lonely Kiwi dairy farmer and his Russian princess. Then there's Lolita, a "complete, unflinching stunner", says Herald reviewer Francis Till. It is adapted from Russian novelist Vladimir Nabokov's banned work, Lolita. Anna Hutchison plays the 12-year-old nymphet and Jon Brazier is reviled paedophile Humbert Humbert.

To Russia With Love, SiLo Theatre, Lower Greys Ave, tonight, at 8, tickets $18-$22. Ph (09) 300 3700
