The Strange Undoing of Prudencia Hart
by David Greig
directed by Luan Schooler & Dámaso Rodríguez
November 30, 2019 – January 5, 2020
Prudencia Hart is an academic scholar of traditional Scottish folklore and immensely dislikes all things pop culture, including her work adversary, Colin Syme. After a particularly long night full of draughts and drams at a pub, Prudencia gets lost in the snow-covered forest and winds up getting saved by a man who may have nefarious intentions. Bewitchingly exuberant, The Strange Undoing of Prudencia Hart is a wild romp through Scottish ballads, karaoke mainstays, and devilish encounters.
The Strange Undoing of Prudencia Hart will be performed among the audience in a pub-style setting. Enjoy traditional Scottish pub fare, beverages, and (of course) whiskey for a nominal additional fee.

“satirical, absurd, a literary parlor game, a crazy surf through folkloric history, and a wild and celebratory slice of storytelling-as-art”
