The Strange Undoing of Prudencia Hart
Created by David Greig

Strange undoings in the Edye? You bet! The National Theatre of Scotland unleashes its company of five raucous actors and musicians to tilt your kilt in the rollicking The Strange Undoing of Prudencia Hart. It’s a wildly entertaining evening of supernatural storytelling, music and theatre inspired by the Border Ballads, Robert Burns and the poems of Robert Service. This ballad about ballads is written with a contemporary twist and is staged with a terrific, interactive and inventive sense of fun. Life-affirming and touchingly beautiful, you don’t have to be Scottish or like haggis to agree with the critics. “…more vibrantly, sexily alive than any piece of theatre I’ve seen in Scotland for years” (The Scotsman).
