Character descriptions

Jane - Residing in a private medical unit, Jane is recovering from the birth of her first child. She knows something isn't right, especially with her mental state. She feels trapped in the room, only some yellow wallpaper to keep her company. Firstly she detests the feature, but over time she finds peace and solace in the patterns, seeing a woman just like her in the shadows of the night.

With John still refusing to believe her illness, she uses the practices garden as an escape. Jennie is the only one who will let her out into the open, and the only one she vaguely trusts. Jane knows she isn't getting better, but the wallpaper makes her feel whole again, like the woman she used to be.

John -As Jane's husband, and doctor, John knows what's best for his wife. He's confident in his own knowledge that Jane will get better, and that her resting is the best medicine to get her back on her feet. He doesn't believe her when she says she feels worse, only reassuring her that it will pass over time.

His arrogance and control keeps Jane under wraps, locked in the room until she feels better. He values his own opinions compared to the other doctors, and even Jennie at times. He's passive but also forceful when treating Jane, another reason why the wallpaper feels like her only friend.
