"An extraordinary piece, one that bulges with bright ideas."The Guardian
"An ingenious and enjoyable take on Voltaire."The Spectator

Candide (Ravenhill) Script
This is optional.
Candide is an optimist. A dreamer. He believes that everything is for the best in the best of all possible worlds. But that belief is about to be tested as Candide's comfortable life is overtaken by an endless barrage of misfortune. As his world collapses around him, the story travels across the centuries to new locations and parallel universes. How will Candide's optimism fare when it collides with life in the 21st Century?
