Anarchic Scottish troupe to present Festival Fringe hit in Studio Theatre

By From page A9 | January 22, 2013

The National Theatre of Scotland comes to the Mondavi Center this month for a five-day run of anarchic theatre, live music and strange goings-on as the Vanderhoef Studio Theatre transforms into a rural Scottish pub for a “locked-in” show (i.e., you’re not supposed to leave until it’s over) titled “The Strange Undoing of Prudencia Hart.”

One wintry morning, the title character, an uptight academic, sets off to attend a conference in Kelso in the Scottish Borders. As the snow begins to fall, little does she know who or what awaits her there. Inspired by the Border Ballads — and delivered in rhyming couplets, amid devilish encounters and wild karaoke — this show enjoyed a sold-out run at the 2011 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, and is now on a worldwide tour.

Performances are in the Vanderhoef Studio Theatre at 8 p.m Wednesday, Jan. 23, through Saturday, Jan. 26, with an additional 2 p.m. matinee on Jan. 26. Tickets are $44 general, $22 for students, available at www.mondaviarts or 530-754-2787.
