A Minister’s Wife

This is a new musical based on Candida, a play by George Bernard Shaw. The plot involves a young romantic poet, Eugene Marchbanks, who challenges the domestic bliss of a clergyman Morell, and his attractive wife, Candida. The poet is enamored of Candida and convinced that she cannot be content with the settled life she leads with the eloquent sermonizer and argues vehemently against the husband’s smug rhetoric. Eugene and Morell force Candida to make a choice between them. Candida, clear in her opinion and slightly contemptuous of the two men’s rivalry, chooses Morell.
