The National Theatre of Scotland’s incredibly popular show The Strange Undoing of Prudencia Hart comes to Richmond for six extraordinary and interactive performances.

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.

The Strange Undoing of Prudencia Hart is performed among the audience, 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.
