The public is invited to participate in the Blue Hill Public Library Play Reading Group on Wednesday, December 20th from 6:30 to 9:00 PM at the library, and every 3rd Wednesday of the month until next summer. This month the group will read The Prime of Miss Jane Brodie, by Jay Presson Allen, based on the novel by Muriel Spark.Click here for directions
In the play, Jean Brodie is a somewhat eccentric teacher in the junior-aged section of the Marcia Blaine School for Girls in Edinburgh, Scotland, in the 1930s, and is much admired by some of the girls. She has love affairs with two of the other teachers and exerts what some consider undue political influence on her students, both of which end up jeopardizing her job.
The group welcomes inexperienced and experienced readers alike. The only criteria are the love of plays and the joy of reading them aloud among like-minded theater fans. For further information, contact the Blue Hill Library at 374-5515 or Michael Donahue at 374-5248, or Donahue.firstname.lastname@example.org.
