The Strange Undoing of Prudencia Hart took the Border Ballads of Scottish folklore and musical tradition and told a modern-day ballad in an anarchic pub setting. Tender, beautiful, chilling and raucous, it goes from hell to heaven and back again in a single whisky-fuelled night.

The audience, seated around tables, drink in hand, were an intrinsic part of the action. This is a ceilidh, a night of song and story, which takes on a mesmeric life of its own as the story moves from light to dark, until the audience are immersed in a world which can shift seamlessly between the supernatural and the everyday - a ballad of borders, indeed.

The Strange Undoing of Prudencia Hart has toured nationally and internationally 2010-2018 from Blair Atholl to Rio, from Coatbridge to Melbourne, Australia, from Edinburgh to Santa Monica CA, and played for a hugely successful New York run for 6 months at the McKittrick Hotel in 2017.
