The Jewish Wife and The Informer, two short plays by Bertolt Brecht, will open June 2 at the Lee Strasberg Creative Center in W. Hollywood, starring Hildy Brooks, who was seen recently in L.A. with her one-woman show When the Rabbi Lied. Jack Betts directs the Brecht plays.

The Jewish Wife, set in 1934 just before the Nuremberg laws went into effect, concerns a wealthy Jewish woman married to a non- Jewish German doctor. It plumbs the conflict she has within herself about her marriage and her ultimate survival as a Jew.

The Informer reflects the fear and paranoia a Lutheran professor and his wife feel when they suspect that their son, a member of the Hitler Youth, is spying on them.

Jim Antonio plays the husbands. He was a regular on the NBC series "Sweet Justice" and has recently guested on "Chicago Hope." Others in the cast include Monica Pattera and Claus Pedersen.

The run is through July 9 at the Lee Strasberg Creative Center, 7936 Santa Monica Blvd. For tickets and information call (323) 650-7777. -- By Willard Manus
