WORLD PREMIERE!  Thrust into a global journey filled with danger, betrayal, and injustice, Voltaire's Candide struggles to hold onto his optimistic belief in the essential goodness of humanity... if only humanity would stop killing his friends and stealing his sheep...

"What is outstanding on every level are the indefatigable, and impeccably hilarious performances by the entire cast... Jon Jory’s Candide is a very plain comedy which hits the intellectual mark." -Gia on the Move
