"A lethal combination of sex, fascist politics and young schoolgirls in the 1930s" -- Evening Standard
Studio Theatre presents the U.S. premiere of a new adaptation of The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie, by Jay Presson Allen, adapted from the novel by Muriel Spark. Sarah Marshall stars in the title role. Joy Zinoman directs.
In 1930s Scotland, the charismatic schoolteacher Jean Brodie seeks to mold a group of impressionable young girls in her own image. As the world hurtles towards war and fascism spreads across Europe, the power games between teacher and students turn dangerous.
