Candida, one of Shaw’s most popular of romantic comedies, sweeps us through one tumultuous day. An impassioned young poet, Marchbanks, has become a fixture in the home of the foreword thinking Reverend, James Morell, and his brilliant wife, Candia. By the end of that day, the poet has forced a life-changing decision from Candida on which man she chooses to spend the rest of her life with. Along the way, Shaw exhibits his dazzling insights and wicked wit.
