Algernon's Morning-Room

Algernon's morning-room is part of his house in the town of London. In the first act, Lane has prepared it for guests, specifically Lady Bracknell and Gwendolen. A piano is situated close to the room, so that playing can be heard easily inside the morning-room. Algernon is supposedly broke, so it is not be surprising that Lane is the only servant in this scene.

Jack's Country-Manor

Jack's large country manor is the play's setting. The manor consists of a garden and morning-room. Jack is said to be wealthy, so it is very likely that aside from Merriam and the foot-man mentioned in the text, there would be many other servants about both places.
