Mydidae Character reserch
Name & Age
Marian, no last name is specified
No age is specified
I think the couple would be a younger couple as they are both going through a lot of things in their lives and aren't coping very well with it. Shows their age and maturity level.
Appearance & Build
Marian will have a clean and slick look about her, she wears suits to work and in her free time she is always presentable. Appearance is a big thing to her and likes to always be presentable and ready for anything she might come across.
Marian's posture would be strong, she likes to put on a
brave face to everyone else as well as her husband David. She doesn't like to show her weakness or her feeling low about anything as she feels it will make her less of the strong woman everyone believes she is.
It is not specified what Marian's job is but by the context in the play I can work it out is in office environment of some sort as she knows a lot about David's job and the vocab etc.
No religion is specified
Have buried their daughter after she died
Marian has a husband called David
￼She doesn't like any compliments from him or other people. She
likes to blow David's compliments off and turn them back on him and make him feel like he is insulting her. This shows her low self esteem.
There is no information about any of their family such as mother and fathers etc. They talk about the loss of someone who is a girl and this is the tragic event they refer to during the play, not so much in the scene.
They have clearly lost their infant who was a girl, this has put a strain on their relationship as they argue about it and also I think that Marian blames David just by the way she talks to him and the way she acts towards him.
Marian and David are going through a horrible thing that has happened in their lives. In the play it is hinted that it is the loss of a child they had, in fact a girl. We are sure as it doesn't specify a age or the baby so we have decided it will be an infant. It also doesn't specify what the tragic event is but as in the play the couple talk about contreception etc we have came to the conclusion that this is what it is.
Because of the tragic loss of their child it has made Marian and David's relationship deaerate and has put a lot of stress on it. Throughout the play their relationship goes through many different stages and the audience get to see them on good terms and bad. In the scene their relationship is at a good part as David is trying to be romantic and at the start Marian isn't happy with him and likes to make fun of him throughout but by the end of it she is happy and smiling and laughing with him which is nice for the audience to see.
