Armed only with a vague understanding of Stanley Kubrick's 1962 film Lolita, three idiots are let loose on a stage to perform a story that is much too big and complex for them to ever hope to tell in their lifetimes, let alone an hour. As the clock ticks along, these three idiots (four, including the director) make mistake after mistake trying their best to bring this adaptation of an adaption of an adaption to life. In the end, the four idiots (five, including the adapter) discover bigger truths about themselves and this classic tale that Vanity Fair called "the only convincing love story of our century."
"Why should we tell this story?" asks Jason Ballweber, Artistic Director of Four Humors. "We shouldn't. That's why. Honestly, this show started as a joke 5 years ago outside of The Know Theater in Cincinnati late at night during their Fringe Festival. But that's how Four Humors' shows get created; a group of people come together to have a great time and do their best to share that experience with an audience."

"Lastly," says Ballweber, "who doesn't want to see Brant Miller in some short shorts?"
