A Respectable Wedding

by Bertolt Brecht
Directed by: Alexandru Dabija

Brecht wrote "A Respectable Wedding" (the German original title literally means "The Petit Bourgeois Wedding") in 1919 at the age of only 21 years. In a comical way the play shows the abyss of petit bourgeois babbittry: the bridal couple, the bride's father and sister, the groom's mother and some friends meet at a wedding party. This party turns more and more into a disaster. The guests behave inappropriately, interrupting each other, treating each other with hostility or making vulgar allusions. As if this was not enough, the groom's pride and joy, all of his home-made furniture, literally breaks down. In the end, they say: "Thank God and the Devil, that they finally left!"
