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


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.
