VISITING SCHOLAR PRESENTS BERTOLT BRECHT’S "THE JEWISH WIFE"

LA CROSSE, Wis.—Fr. Bernard McGarty, a visiting scholar in ecumenical studies in Viterbo’s Religious Studies Department, will present Bertolt Brecht’s famous one act play, "The Jewish Wife," on Monday, April 17, at 7 p.m. in the Viterbo Black Box Theatre.

A prelude to a lecture, presented by Fr. McGarty, about the history of Jewish and Catholic relations,  "The Jewish Wife" examines the changes in a marriage between a Catholic doctor and a Jewish woman in Frankfurt, Germany around 1934. The husband is faced with the decision of choosing between his love for his wife and his career.

Viterbo senior Kevin Schniepp, from La Crosse, plays the husband and freshman Jennifer Spridco, from DeForest, portrays the wife.

The performance and lecture are free and open to the public. No ticket is required. The Viterbo Black Box Theatre entrance is located on 9th Street between Jackson and Winnebago.
