In A Respectable Wedding (1919) Brecht ruthlessly ridiculed the apparent perfection, false morality, sentimentality and commonness of the petite bourgeoisie. The world of illusiory happiness of the petite bourgeoisie, which reaches its peak with a wedding, collapses in front of the audience along with the groom’s handmade furniture, which breaks even before the wedding reception is over.

The young couple’s happiest day turns hellish: "Tomorrow everyone will know what it was like and everybody will laugh. In church they will be looking at us while thinking of the furniture and the lamp that wasn’t lit and what’s even worse, of the bride being pregnant. And I was going to say that it was a premature birth." A Respectable Wedding features witty and relaxed dialogue, word play, allegorical turns and absurd humour.
