Candide (2 stars)

This article is from 2008.

Despite a lively performance from Prentis Hancock as Voltaire, this one-man production fails to catch fire. The biting satire that makes the story so riveting simply doesn't emerge from behind the dialogue-heavy script, and the colourful characters Candide meets on his voyages never really come to life.

Greenside, 557 2124, until 23 Aug, 8.40pm, £9–£10 (£7–£8).
