At Marcia Blaine School for Girls, Miss Jean Brodie presides over her ‘set’, her chosen few. In return for their absolute devotion, Miss Brodie will provide an education far beyond the confines of the curriculum.
Great teachers leave a mark. Miss Jean Brodie’s will never be erased.
Artistic Director Josie Rourke said:
“In the centenary year of her birth, Muriel Spark’s iconic novel, THE PRIME OF MISS JEAN BRODIE, has been adapted for the Donmar by leading playwright, David Harrower. It’s wonderful to have these two major Scottish voices join in concert on the Donmar stage. Directing the production, we herald the return of one our most significant and exciting directors, Polly Findlay, whose production of Limehouse was a resounding triumph last year. Lia Williams and rising talent Rona Morison lead the cast.”
