A Respectable Wedding is a short play by the German dramatist Bertolt Brecht. The German title Die Kleinbürgerhochzeit literally means the petit bourgeois wedding. Like other of Brecht’s early works, for example Baal, Drums in the Night, and The Threepenny Opera, it is seen as a critique of bourgeois society.[1]

It includes nine characters, The Bride's Father, The Bridegroom's Mother, The Bride The Bride's Sister, The Bridegroom, His Friend, The Wife, Her Husband, and The Young Man. Mr WALLACE
