Optimism!
or Voltaire’s Candide 

by Francois-Marie Arouet
adapted by TJ Edwards

April 25 – May 19, 2013

Directed by Michael Chamberlin

Voltaire’s masterpiece, adapted for the stage in rhymed couplets by playwright TJ Edwards, is an assault on society, religion, human nature, education, government and above all, optimism. Candide’s journey is here enacted by nine actors playing over 70 roles in a madcap journey to discover just what it is that makes life worth living.
