'All the world's an Xbox and you're a player'
Candide is an optimist. A dreamer. 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 an endless barrage of misfortune.
As his world collapses around him, we are transported across the centuries to new locations and parallel universes. How will Candide's optimism fare when it collides with life in the 21st century?
RSC Writer in Residence Mark Ravenhill responds to Voltaire's novel in a new play directed by Lyndsey Turner.
