DRAMA and folk music will bring to life a theatre company’s latest production when it comes to Witham.

The Eastern Angles Theatre Company will be taking to the stage at Witham Public Hall while touring its spring show The Strange Undoing of Prudencia Hart.

Audiences will be able to venture across the Scottish Borders as the thriller follows Purdencia, an academic, on her way to attend a conference in Kelso.

As snow starts to fall, she begins a mystical adventure of self-discovery accompanied by plenty of folky musical moments.

The strange and beautiful Scottish tale is told by four mischievous storytellers.

Sometimes they speak in boombastic rhyming verse, sometimes through beguiling traditional folk songs, which aim to set viewers toes tapping and their hearts racing.

The show, originally produced by National Theatre of Scotland in 2011, began its tour across the East last Wednesday starting at the John Peel Centre in Stowmarket.

Director Hal Chambers said: “Having directed Eastern Angles production of Ragnaork at the Hush House in 2014, I will once again be bringing a few visual surprises to the good people [of the East].

“I am working with Bek Palmer (a designer who has a daringly dark imagination and brilliant mask and puppet designs) to bring you a night of spine-tingling shocks and tantalising thrills.

"Get yourself a drink, pull up a seat by the bar and enjoy the unforgettable experience of The Strange Undoing of Prudencia Hart.”

Part live folk-gig, part folk tale, part barn-storming comedy the play will thrill and haunt in equal measure.

The performance in Witham takes place on Friday, March 31, at 7.45pm. Doors open at 7.15pm.

Tickets are £12 and £10 for senior citizens and children under 16.
