The Strange Undoing of Prudencia Hart

The Strange Undoing of Prudencia Hart

November 30 - January 6, 2020
Tiffany Center

by David Greig
directed by Luan Schooler & Dámaso Rodríguez
featuring the Katie Jane Band

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. This play runs approximately 2 hours.

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