Sydney Theatre Company, Sydney Festival, Malthouse Melbourne & Edinburgh International Festival present
Optimism
by Tom Wright, after Voltaire

Direct from critically acclaimed seasons in Melbourne and Edinburgh tickets to our first show of 2010, Optimism, are selling fast.

Frank Woodley, of Lano and Woodley fame, stars as Candide, who has enjoyed a privileged life and merrily subscribes to the theory that all is for the best. That is until his love for the Barons rosy-cheeked daughter is detected and, by way of punishment, he is ejected from this Eden. Here begins Candides extraordinary and epic journey around the globe. The world he experiences is cruel and frequently brutal Will it chip away at his insatiable optimism?

From 8 January
Drama Theatre,
Sydney Opera House
