When weakness is strength
Candida, a classic comedy of manners, examines the relationship between a husband and wife in the late Victorian era. Candida Morell, a beautiful and charming woman, is married to Reverend James Morell, a dedicated Christian socialist. The couple have taken in Eugene Marchbanks, a young, idealistic poet without a home. Candida finds herself the subject of a tug-of-war between the two men as Marchbanks declares his passionate love for Morell's wife. This lesser known play by George Bernard Shaw questions Victorian notions of love and marriage; asking what a woman really desires from her husband.
