WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Candide has been taught by his mentor, Dr. Pangloss, that everything in the world is for the best. The boy embraces this doctrine on a sprawling, world-wide journey. However, his lessons in the world are quite contrary to what he has been taught in the classroom. Voltaire's masterpiece, adapted for the stage in rhymed couplets by playwright TJ Edwards (The Pearl Theatre Company), is an assault on society, religion, human nature, education, government and above all, optimism. Candide's journey is here enacted by 11 actors playing over 75 roles in a madcap journey to discover just what it is that makes life worth living.
