THE PRIME OF MISS JEAN BRODIE, a new stage adaptation of Muriel Spark's iconic novel by Scottish playwright David Harrower, in the 100th anniversary year of Muriel Spark's birth.

Polly Findlay returns to the Donmar to direct, following her acclaimed production of Limehouse. Lighting design from Charles Balfour, Sound Design from Paul Arditti and Composer Marc Tritschler.
At Marcia Blaine School for Girls, Miss Jean Brodie presides over her 'set', her chosen few. In return for their absolute devotion, Miss Brodie will provide an education far beyond the confines of the curriculum.
Great teachers leave a mark. Miss Jean Brodie's will never be erased.
THE PRIME OF MISS JEAN BRODIE will run at the Donmar Warehouse from 4th June to the 28th July 2018. For more information and the book tickets, click here.
