“All my pupils are the crème de la crème.”
This year’s school play at the College is Jay Presson Allen’s dramatization of the novel by Muriel Spark which was made famous in 1969 when Maggie Smith won an Oscar for her portrayal of the title role.
When a maverick schoolmistress in a conservative school in Edinburgh in the 1930s is in her prime, the classroom can take on a new identity and no one can predict what will happen. Jean Brodie tries to cultivate the interests of her ‘gels’ with exposure to opera and art but also introduces them to what she perceives to be the advantages of Fascism. This adaptation tells the sparkling story of Miss Brodie’s prime and fall.
The students and staff would like to invite you to join us in the College Assembly Hall on Thursday 24th or Friday 25th November at 8.00pm for this witty and charming play. You can telephone the school to reserve seats (028 38332439) or simply turn up on either evening.
