The first broadcast took place on the occasion of the World Theater Day in the first program of the television of the GDR on March 23, 1980 in color.

The dramaturgy was in the hands of Bernd Schirmer .


Rainer Kerndl wrote in New Germany that the depiction of the characters creates an unproductive imprisonment in paralyzing bourgeoisie.
