It’s 1930s Edinburgh and Miss Jean Brodie cuts a dash through the Marcia Blaine School for Girls. She has the frocks, she has her tenure, and she has a tendency to romanticise Fascism in class. The Brodie Set are the focus of her devotion and energy, her girls are the crème de la crème. But overlooking Greyfrairs Kirk and on the banks of the Forth at Cramond, there is a snake in the grass …and the trousers.
