Naive Louisiana boy Candide finds himself booted from his home plantation after an indiscreet affair with the youthful Cunegonde. Thrust into a cruel world of betrayal and injustice, he struggles to hold fast his optimistic belief in the essential goodness of human nature. If only human nature didn't keep killing his friends and stealing his sheep... A fast-paced and innovative adaptation of the classic satire by Voltaire designed to be performed by six actors.
