Summary
In 'A Respectable Wedding' (1919) Brecht ruthlessly ridiculed the apparent perfection, false morality, sentimentality and commonness of the petite bourgeoisie. The world of illusionary happiness of the petite bourgeoisie, which reaches its peak with a wedding, collapses in front of the audience as quickly as the groom's handmade furniture, which breaks even before the wedding reception finishes. 'A Respectable Wedding' was the only one of Brecht's early one act plays to be staged during his life. It premiered in Frankfurt in 1926
