Based on George Bernard Shaw's Candida, A MINISTER'S WIFE explores the fires burning beneath the surface of a seemingly ordinary marriage. The Revered James Morell (Marc Kudisch) and his wife, Candida (Kate Fry), are happily married - or at least they think - until a romantic young poet, Marchbanks, (Bobby Steggert) enters their life.
