    " Good, but not great. This play is surprisingly shallow for Shaw. It is a nice story about loving relationships, but only one of the characters is challenged in any way and the whole play feels a little slight.

    I guess I was just expecting more. "

    " An established couple is forced to reavaluate their love. Interesting that, as a drama, the author's descriptions of what the characters are feeling often come from stage directions and non-spoken descriptions. "

    " Candida is an extraordinary literary figure. An incredibly progressive woman; charming, motherly, intelligent, affectionate and not afraid to ask for what she wants. And what she wants is not typical.


About the Author

George Bernard Shaw (1856–1950), Irish-born playwright, critic, and political activist, began his writing career in London. In addition to writing sixty-three plays, his prodigious output as critic, pamphleteer, and essayist influenced numerous social issues. In 1925, he won the Nobel Prize for Literature and in 1938 an Oscar for the movie version of Pygmalion.
