Prudencia Hart has a passion for folk music – as the young academic travels to a conference in Kelso, the snow starts to fall, and so begins a mystical adventure of self-discovery. This beautiful and darkly comic tale is told by a series of mischievous storytellers, sometimes speaking in riotous rhyming verse, sometimes singing beguiling traditional folk songs. It’s a show that will set your toes tapping and your heart racing!
Originally produced by The National Theatre of Scotland in 2011, this brand new Eastern Angles production will tour to forty-five different venues including barns, a church and a pub!
Director Hal Chambers, who previously directed Ragnarok for the company, is excited to be working on the show; “Having directed Eastern Angles’ production of Ragnarok at the Hush House in 2014, I will once again be bringing a few visual surprises to the good people of Suffolk. I am working with Bek Palmer, a designer with a daringly dark imagination and brilliant mask and puppetry ideas, to create a night of spine-tingling shocks and tantalising thrills. I want people to grab themselves a drink, pull up a seat and enjoy an unforgettable experience.”
This show will be an immersive experience - part folk-gig, part folk tale and part barn-storming comedy, Prudencia Hart will thrill and haunt in equal measure.
