Elizabeth Gaskell's Cranford presents the lives of Cranford ladies consisting of old maids and widows living in a provincial town, Cranford. This study is aimed at analyzing the performance and performative acts performed by the Cranford ladies. This study shows that the performance and performative acts institute not only their gender but also their class identity as middle-class women. Therefore, gender and class identity intertwine and are constituted by stylized repetition of acts. Key words: performance, performative acts, gender
