Acting for the Representation of Self-Identity “All the word’s is a stage.” (Shakespeare) Acting is a key term for the play The Importance of Being Earnest. Society becomes the stage for the characters for representing their double characters. Female and male characters shape their identities and expectations in order to fit in the society.
