THE PRIME OF MISS JEAN BRODIE
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.
In the 100th anniversary year of Muriel Spark’s birth, her iconic novel receives an arresting new stage adaptation by David Harrower, with Lia Williams in the title role. Polly Findlay returns to the Donmar to direct, following her acclaimed production of Limehouse.
