Dancing with the devil

“Terrific, inventive sense of fun” – The Scotsman

One wintry morning, Prudencia Hart—an uptight academic—sets off to attend a conference in the Scottish Borders; little does she know who awaits her. Delivered in a riotous romp of rhyming couplets, devilish encounters, and wild karaoke, Prudencia’s dream-like journey of self-discovery unfolds among and around the audience (members of which receive a taste of whisky as they enter the Woolfe Street Playhouse) in this immersive experience. The National Theatre of Scotland makes its Spoleto Festival USA debut with this “gleeful import” that “shifts seamlessly from robust silliness to sensual dreaminess” (The New York Times). Pull up a chair and whet your whistle for an evening of anarchic theater, live music, and strange goings-on.
