The National Theatre of Scotland has sold out plenty of shows in Austin, but due to unforeseen circumstances they had to cancel a previous production of The Strange Undoing of Prudencia Hart. But local theatre fans made their voices heard and now the production will appear at Bass Concert Hall, presenting an evening of anarchic theatre, live music and strange goings-on as Prudencia Hart, an uptight academic, sets off to attend a conference in Kelso in the Scottish Borders, where the folk-studies community has gathered for a symposium. Indulge in an evening of supernatural storytelling, music and theatre inspired by Border Ballads, Robert Burns and the poems of Robert Service.
