The Strange Undoing of Prudencia Hart

Fight the forces of evil in a Scottish ballad with the National Theatre of Scotland in the home of Sleep No More.

Escape the busy life of New York for a night with a trip to Scotland via the latest production at The McKittrick Hotel, 'The Strange Undoing of Prudencia Hart'. The Heath has been transformed into a classic pub where you will witness the prickly heroine battle foes from all angles to overcome all odds, all the while drinking whiskey (naturally) and cheering on the side of good (mostly).

Writer David Grieg has put together a story of a fierce academic, whose speciality is old Scottish folklore, who starts by attending a conference on border ballads and ends up becoming tangled up with the devil. Of course, the journey is not a straightforward one, with questions, songs and so many rhymes along the way, which will leave you sitting at the end of your seat wondering how Prudencia will figure it all out. Directed by Wils Wilson for the National Theatre of Scotland, this ballad of a show will make you want to visit (or at least learn more about) Scotland, filled as it is with national references and jokes.

If you've always wanted to check out the now mainstream yet still cult-inducing, immersive experience over at the McKittrick, Sleep No More, but worried it might be a bit much, their latest production will be a good chance for you to dip your toes in.
