Candide is an optimist. 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 war, murder, natural disaster and endless misfortune.
Beset by a barrage of clouds, Candide struggles to maintain his faith in silver linings.
RSC Writer in Residence Mark Ravenhill responds to Voltaire's novel in a new play, directed by Lyndsey Turner.
