Pull up a chair and wet your whistle for an evening of anarchic theatre, live music, and strange goings-on as the Vanderhoef Studio Theatre transforms into a rural pub. 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, barn-storming 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.
