About This Show

The Main Stage opens its 80th season with a revival of George Bernard Shaw’s fast-paced, thought-provoking 1894 comedy, Candida, which was first performed in Stockbridge in 1928 during the Berkshire Playhouse’s inaugural season. Set in London’s East End during the Victorian era, Candida is about the domestic turmoil that ensues when a dashing and sensitive young poet comes between a socially progressive minister and his charismatic wife. Though the play revolves around a classic romantic triangle, the questions it raises about love, fidelity, and the imagination of the artist are as relevant today as ever.
