Nobody really knows what period this is set in. Most critics feel it reflects the contemporary period of the time it was written in: this would be around 1879. There is definitely a separation of gender expectations and power dynamics. Ironically the lasting power of this play attests to how many of these conflicts still existing in today's society.
