The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie
by Different Stages

Nov. 21 - Dec. 13, 2014

Based on the 1961 novella by Muriel Sparks, The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie is the story of an uncommonly progressive schoolteacher at an uncommonly conservative school in Scotland. The title character is a young woman who adores teaching. She is a teacher, "first, last and only," she tells her students. And she is in her prime, she states proudly. She is not just a schoolteacher - her educational methods go far beyond the classroom. She takes her girls to museums, to the theater and to the opera. She neglects the mundane subjects like math, preferring to focus on exposing her students to beauty and art. She is proudly uncommon and equally uncouth, taping photographs of Mussolini over a poster bearing the motto, "Safety first!" She selects favorites of "her girls," and directs her uncommon passion and energy to them, predicting what their futures will hold, frequently telling them how much she loves them.
