Jean Brodie (Julia Calvert) is an eccentric, egocentric, and charismatic teacher in an all-girls school in Edinburgh. It is the 1930’s and Miss Brodie believes she has entered her “prime”. This perception influences her teaching, which becomes all the more idiosyncratic and personal. She ignores the standard curriculum and teaches her students about art, culture, and politics in line with her own proclivities. She has her chosen set of students known as The Brodie Set, who she manipulates and brainwashes into following all her ideologies instead of those of the school. The play also follows the journey of her sensual love life and finally the serious consequences of her actions this has on her Set.
Directed by Chiara Hyzler and featuring Julia Calvert as Brodie, Ninette Micallef, Katherine Brown, Michael Mangion, Stefan Farrugia, Jonathan Dunn, Jasmine Farrugia, Taryn Mamo Cefai, Sandie von Brockdorff and Kyra Lautier,
