The person in the Play

Hon. Gwendolen Fairfax

She wants to marry a man whose name is earnest. She can do anything to get what she wants. She is a cousin of Algenon Moncrieff. She is a bossy, forceful, opinionated, strong idea about social protocol. 

Lady Bracknell

She is the only character in the play who is single. She is a dominant, overbearing and powerful lady. Whoever she says, is a streak of stone. She belongs to a wealthy British family. She passes the rules and traditions for the society where she lives and everybody has to obey their rule. She also discriminates on the basis of class. 

Cecily Cardew
