The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie Dates / Times 2019-03-08 to 2019-03-16 (19:30 to 22:00) Organization Workshop Theatre Type Multi Day Community 2140 Pumphouse Theatre SWCalgary, ABT3C 3P5 403.253.2002 Edinburgh in the 1930s is conservative and respectable, but at the Marcia Blaine School for Girls, Miss Brodie stands out among the drab faculty, with her passionate teaching style. Ignoring the more mundane subjects, she instructs her girls in Italian art, unconventional romance, and Fascist politics. When Teddy Lloyd, a handsome art teacher, tries to reignite a past, passionate affair, Miss Brodie retreats into the arms of meek, conventional choir master Gordon Lowther. But when she tries to have a love affair on her own terms, the subsequent sneaking around endangers her job, leaving her vulnerable to enemies. Will Miss Brodie's dedication to the teaching profession, and to the hearts and minds of her girls, keep her in her prime? Will her influence be benevolent, or is she just "not good for people".... her controversial teaching philosophy draws the ire of the school's headmistress, Miss Mackey, and, as Miss Brodie becomes entangled in a love triangle, her behavior towards her favorite students becomes increasingly manipulative. .
