Inspired by Voltaire’s classic satire, this new vision is an exploration of rampant optimism, social media, parallel universes and genetic engineering in this “best of all possible worlds.”  In his contemporary adaptation, Ravenhill creates a string of narratives in which his characters sleepwalk through a variety of dystopic landscapes.
