Benromach, the smallest distillery in Speyside, is to host an award winning production by the National Theatre of Scotland over two nights in July, as The Strange Undoing of Prudencia Hart returns to Scotland following a highly successful international tour, sponsored by Benromach single malt whisky, which took in dates in the US and Brazil .

The show, which has been performed in pubs and other alternative venues throughout its run will be performed in the Benromach Visitor Centre in Forres on Friday 6 and Saturday 7 July 2012.

David Urquhart, the Joint Managing Director of Gordon & MacPhail, owners of the Benromach Distillery, said in a media release: “It is fitting that this award winning artistic performance will be delivered at Benromach – the home of our hand-crafted Single Malts. We look forward to welcoming the cast, crew and audience to Speyside’s smallest distillery for what promises to be two fantastic evenings’ of entertainment.”

The Strange Undoing of Prudencia Hart is an evening of supernatural storytelling, music and theatre inspired by Border Ballads, Robert Burns and the poems of Robert Service. The tale follows Prudencia Hart, an uptight academic, as she sets off to attend a conference one wintery morning in the Scottish Borders. But, as the snow falls her wild journey through the night takes her into and out of different supernatural and natural realms looking for folk songs.

Those attending the Forres performance (18 years and above) will be invited to sample Benromach 10 Years Old at the Visitors Centre.

Tickets for the performances can be purchased at Benromach Visitors Centre.
