The Strange Undoing of Prudencia Hart

1 Jan 2012

Pull up a bar stool and wet your whistle for an evening of anarchic theatre, live music and strange goings-on…

One wintry morning Prudencia Hart, an uptight academic, sets off to attend a conference in Kelso in the Scottish Borders. As the snow begins to fall, little does she know who or what awaits her there. Inspired by the Border Ballads and delivered in a riotous romp of rhyming couplets, devilish encounters and wild karaoke, Prudencia’s dream-like journey of self-discovery unfolds among and around the audience.

With a rollicking text by David Greig, creator of Brighton Festival 2011 hit Midsummer; barnstorming live music; and a ‘terrific, inventive sense of fun…’ (The Scotsman), The Strange Undoing of Prudencia Hart is the lock-in to end all lock-ins.

'More vibrantly alive than any piece of theatre I’ve seen in Scotland for years. ’**** The Scotsman
