The Strange Undoing of Prudencia Hart
Returning for a Scottish tour. With a rollicking text by David Greig, barnstorming 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.
A new, life-affirming Scottish musical with a vibrant multicultural voice at its heart. Based on a true story, the lives of seven teenage girls are changed forever when one of their friends - and her asylum seeking family - have been forcibly taken from their home to be deported.
Set specifically in the town of each performance and drawing on storytelling, live music and the Scottish folk tradition, Rantin attempts to stitch together visions of Scotland’s past with its ever-changing present reality, revealing the patchwork identity of a nation.
