“The Strange Undoing of Prudencia Hart” – National Theatre of Scotland

Event News

The International Festival of Arts & Ideas presents “The Strange Undoing of Prudencia Hart” from the National Theatre of Scotland March 30 – April 3, shows at 3pm and 8pm at Yale University’s GPSCY, 204 York St., New Haven, CT.

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.

“you shouldn’t miss this show for the world…rambunctiously life-affirming and touchingly beautiful”
★★★★★ The Herald (Scotland)
“a pleasurably interactive and often quite enchanting immersion in an inimitably Scottish style of storytelling” The Washington Post
“a witty, ebullient, freeing, bacchanalian night out with friends”
Chicago Tribune

Performances of “Prudencia Hart” have sold out across Scotland, around the world and in New Haven in 2012, 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…

Tickets available online artidea.org/festival : $45 General Admission; $35 for Festival members. Recommended for ages 14 and over. All attendees under the age of 21 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
