The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie
A Wokingham Theatre Production
A dramatic exploration of a charismatic and unconventional schoolteacher’s impact on her students in 1930s Edinburgh. Miss Jean Brodie, with her unorthodox teaching methods and romantic notions of life, becomes a mentor and muse to a group of girls, but her influence also leads them down dangerous paths. As her methods are called into question and her personal life is exposed, Miss Brodie’s downfall becomes inevitable. With nuance characters and a haunting sense of loss, The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie is a powerful examination of the power dynamics of education and the consequences of blind devotion.
