Four Humors Presents CANDIDE, 8/3-11

A young man indoctrinated by the philosophy of the day. A philosopher dead certain in his reasoning. And a world that refuses to be constrained by reason of any kind.

Using Voltaire’s classic 18th century novel Candide, playwright Nick Ryan and Director Jason Ballweber bring us a comedy concerning floggings, rape, justifiable homicide, ship travel, earthquakes, tempests, Bulgar soldiers, French surgeons, Grand Inquisitors, Barons, Jews, Christians, Jesuits, mass murder, death, desire, artistic critique, fallen kings, the lost city of El Dorado, public execution, storytelling, and the general joy and suffering one finds within this, the best of all possible worlds.

According to playwright Nick Ryan, "Candide has proven a joy to adapt thus far and immensely relevant to the world we find ourselves in today… the process has largely consisted of me stepping out of Voltaire's way!"

From the company that brought you past Fringe hits Inspector Rex (2005), Deviled Eggs (2006), Bards (2007), Mortem Capiendum (2008), Sideways Stories from Wayside School (2009) and You Only Live Forever Once (2011).

Featuring the acting talents of Featuring Christian Bardin, Anna Hickey, Ryan Lear, Brant Miller and Matt Spring.
