The Informer


Set in the living room of a middle class family on a Sunday afternoon in the late 1930s, Brecht describes his play as “a dramatic sketch of family life as it is today in the new Hiter’s Germany.” A teacher and his wife are terrified that their son, a member of the Hitler Youth, will turn them in for their negative statements about the Nazism. They are even fearful that their maid, also a committed Nazi, will inform on them. The teacher attempts to find ways to make his actions more politically acceptable.
