SUMMARY

Pull up a chair 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.

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.

National Theatre of Scotland cannot be held responsible in the event of any member of the audience losing their head, their heart or their very self during the course of the performance.

"You shouldn’t miss this show for the world… rambunctiously life-affirming and touchingly beautiful." ***** THE HERALD

"More vibrantly alive than any piece of theatre I’ve seen in Scotland for years."
