George Bernard Shaw's delightfully human and entertaining comedy presents Candida with a choice between her devoted but complacent husband and a young poet who passionately adores her. Since she is married to a vicar who regularly stuns his congregation with the eloquence of his sermons, and the poet is prepared to go any lengths to undermine him, Candida needs all her resources of wit and candour to resolve a potentially explosive situation.
