It is about a comedy with music and revue elements. The action is set in a petit-bourgeois neighborhood with its habitants to enlighten the daily events from the unimportant worries to the anxiety for the international politics. The resort to older revues aims at weakening the significance of our times. The play thus underlines the thought that the centuries copy one another, with variations, while the demands are maximized, because nowadays, more and more people acquire education and get informed. The Tempest in a Teacup maximizes the minimum and comments critically and with comparative interjections and in juxtaposition yesterday and today.
