The Strange Undoing of Prudencia Hart

The Club Car, The McKittrick Hotel

8 Mar - 30 Apr 2023 | New York


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, rhyming couplets of Robert Burns and poems of Robert Service, Prudencia's dream-like journey of self-discovery transforms non-traditional performance spaces, creating a new and immersive theatrical experience.

With a rollicking text by David Greig, barnstorming live music, and an ingenious and enchanting story, The Strange Undoing of Prudencia Hart returns to The McKittrick Hotel in New York, following its ground-breaking residency in the hotel's pub and theatre space in 2016-17.

National Theatre of Scotland cannot be held responsible in the event of any member of the audience losing their head, their heart or their very self during the course of the performance.

Produced by the Royal Lyceum Theatre, Edinburgh & Double M Arts & Events LLC.
