Candida, according to Irish Rep notes, "tells the story of Reverend James Morell and how his comfortable marriage to Candida is shaken by the arrival of the young poet, Marchbanks. Both men adore her, in quite different ways and for quite different reasons, and she is attracted to them for their very different qualities. Marchbanks believes Candida has a choice. Morell is devastated by the idea of losing her. They both forget she is her own woman." Errico (Broadway's High Society, Amour, White Christmas) stars in the title role, with Murray (The Crucible) as Candida's father, Mr. Burgess; Irish Rep managing director O'Reilly as Reverend James Morell; Sam Underwood as Eugene Marchbanks, the romantic suitor of Candida; Xanthe Elbrick as the clergyman's secretary Prossy; and Josh Grisetti as the Reverend's curate Lexy.
