Bertolt Brecht: A Respectable Wedding
Owen Lewis, director
Guildhall School production
"How are we going to get rid of them? They don't show any signs of going; they're still stuffing their faces and chucking back the booze. And it's meant to be our day."
It's their big day, their perfect, special day. No pressure. Just a romantic wedding dinner between a loving young couple and their adoring friends and family. What could possibly go wrong? Brecht's little known comedy, in a translation by Rory Bremner, pokes uproarious fun at the pretensions and affectations of middle-class respectability.
