Mystery-Bouffe is a socialist dramatic play written by Russian poet and playwright Vladimir Mayakovski between 1918 and 1921. The play is a spectacular hymn to the working class revolution that overthrew the Russian bourgeoisie and its monarchy in order to establish a utopian commune.

A century later, the society is in a similar social situation where the working class is disappointed by the outcome of revolution. Communism and socialism were substituted by capitalism: with the economy is in a crisis, the workers are underpaid or not paid at all. The welfare of a commoner is worsening, while the elite continues to prosper on behalf of the exploitation of working people.

The play is a humorous warning to fellow Homo sapiens who have the tendency to forget that history repeats itself. The next warning will probably not be as funny as is Mystery-Bouffe.
