THE STRANGE UNDOING OF PRUDENCIA HART, National Theatre of Scotland - Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts - April 19, 2016
National Theatre of Scotland has earned a national and international reputation for its daring and originality. The Theatre’s incredibly popular show – The Strange Undoing of Prudencia Hart – won a Herald Angel award at the 2011 Edinburgh Fringe Festival and the Critics’ Awards for Theatre in Scotland for “Best Music and Sound.” The production is now thrilling audiences around the world.
Pull up a chair and whet your whistle for an incredibly inventive and entertaining piece of anarchic theater, 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.
“This lively tall tale, told with music, wit and wily storytelling, kindles a bonnie cheerful fire inside.” – Austin Chronicle
