The Devil in Scotland

The Strange Undoing of Prudencia Hart -- Gryphon's Pub at Yale University -- Thru April 3

Jessica Hardwick
Not time for an extended review. Suffice it to say that this is a delightful, magical evening that tells the tale of one Prudencia Hart, a scholar of Scottish ballads and folklore who attends a conference only to find herself snowed-in and ending up in...well, it certainly ain't Kansas.

Performed at Gryphon's Pub at Yale University (204 York Street) by five very talented actors, this is theater as intimate as it can get (made more intimate by the free wee dram of single-malt Scotch available before the start of the show).

The show only runs through this Sunday, April 3, and is presented as part of the upcoming International Festival of Arts & Ideas. For more information or tickets (if they are still available) go to

The show is just one hell of a lot of fun, and you will get see a young actress, Jessica Hardwick, who will absolutely mesmerize you. Seeing her performance is worth twice the price of admission.
