Candide | ALRA North | Wigan

ALRA North presents Candide by Voltaire.

When the ever optimistic Candide is thrown from his privileged home, disgraced for kissing the salacious Cunegonde, his true love (and step-sister!), he begins a hectic romp around the world with his trusty servant searching for Enlightenment. But things go from bad to worse and back again as Candide is shaken by an earthquake, terrorised by torturers and cornered by cannibals.
