National Theatre of Scotland: The Strange Undoing of Prudencia Hart (30-3)


  • GPSCY 204 York Street New Haven, CT, 06511 United States (map)

“Wildly entertaining! Patrons beware: Attending this show may result in you getting kissed, asked to join in a song, or worse. But it’s all in good fun” –Washingtonian Magazine

CREATED BY DAVID GREIG AND WILS WILSON

Performances of Prudencia Hart have sold out across Scotland, around the world and in New Haven in 2012, so pull up a chair and wet your whistle for an incredibly inventive and entertaining piece 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, 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.

Recommended for ages 14 and over. All attendees under the age of 21 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Running time - 2 hours 30 mins including intermission.
