Adelaide Festival 1 - 17 March 2013

The Strange Undoing of Prudencia Hart

National Theatre of Scotland
Australian Premiere Season

United Kingdom

“You shouldn’t miss this show for the world… rambunctiously life-affirming and touchingly beautiful.”

The Herald

Pull up a bar stool and whet your whistle for an evening of anarchic theatre, live music and rambunctious goings-on. Prudencia, an uptight academic, sets off to attend a conference in the Scottish Borders, little knowing who or what awaits her in the fresh fallen snow. Her dream-like journey of self-discovery unfolds amid the audience in a riotous romp of rhyming couplets, devilish encounters and wild karaoke.
