About Book

One wintry morning academic Prudencia Hart sets off to a conference in the Scottish Borders. Stranded there by snow, she is swept off on a dream-like journey of self discovery, complete with magical moments, devilish encounters and wittily wild music.

Inspired by the Border ballads, The National Theatre of Scotland's production of The Strange Undoing of Prudencia Hart by David Greig has toured throughout Scotland and the world since 2011. In 2013 the Royal Court Theatre presented the London premiere of this production as part of their Theatre Local strand of site specific productions.

'You shouldn't miss this for the world . . . Rambunctiously life-affirming and touchingly beautiful.' Herald

'More vibrantly alive than any piece of theatre I've seen in Scotland for years.' Scotsman
