THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST
R 8/28 O 10/6 C 10/15
Seeking
LADY BRACKNELL
(50’s – 60’s) A gorgon of disapproval whom the next generation must get around. Bracknell exercises extreme force in navigating the young towards financially remunerative matches. She is the fount of all British upper crust values: status, privilege, old wealth, land, and respectability. She arranges the marriages in the play much like Wilde’s mother arranged his own. May be played by either a woman or a man, and by any race or ethnicity. Speaks aristocratic British English with sophistication, relishing her elite status. Physically agile and highly performative, has the Irish mischief in her blood. She can devastate you with a glance, a bon mot, a deft aside. Lady Bracknell is based on a fictional character as well as Lady Queensberry, Lord Alfred Douglas’s mother, and Oscar Wilde’s own mother, Lady Jane Wilde, a revolutionary writer and Irish patriot
