Strange things at the Exchange

The Strange Undoing Of Prudencia Hart, at Manchester Royal Exchange from December 4 to January 15, is a devilish offering from writer David Greig.

A wild musical play sees Scottish folk songs collide with karaoke to promise "wit, passion, seduction and sambucas".

Making her Exchange debut as Prudencia Hart is actor, writer and director Joanne Thomson in the role of an exacting academic whose journey begins as snow starts to fall. It's astonishing what Prudencia will discover and most of all what she will find out about herself.
