Dreamlike storytelling awaits you in this immersive theatrical experience based on the globally acclaimed production by the National Theatre of Scotland. Join Prudencia Hart on a haunting journey with supernatural encounters, Scottish folk songs, and razor-sharp turns you won’t see coming. Grab a seat and sip a pint as we’re taken on an adventure in the Shirt Shop Mercantile (formerly The Grill) in Downtown Tucson.
Inspired by the Scottish Borderland Ballads, this tale finds uptight academic Prudencia Hart departing one wintry morning for a conference in the borderlands. What awaits her is an enchanting and suspenseful journey of devilish encounters, wittily wild karaoke, and dreamlike self-discovery.
Renowned Scottish playwright David Greig connects the dots between contemporary themes, Scottish culture and identity, and the grand tradition of writing for the stage, by weaving a tale set in current time but using largely rhymed verse. Prudencia is manically funny and soul-searching, often within the same stanza.
The Strange Undoing of Prudencia Hart is an immersive musical theatrical experience. Expect performers to madly traverse the Shirt Shop Mercantile (100 E. Congress Street, Tucson, AZ 85701), which will be magically transformed each night into a Scottish pub. Prudencia contains mild profanity and adult references delivered in rhymed verse; recommended for ages 14 and up.
Due to the nature of the performance, latecomers cannot be seated. Come early, grab a seat, and enjoy a pint as we’re taken on an adventure through the Scottish borderlands in this award-winning, critically acclaimed musical play. Cash bar available.
