The-Prudent-Man.jpg This darkly comedic political thriller looks at what makes the Trumps, the Abbotts and the Hansons of this world tick.

A conservative politician, a leader, a man in a snappy suit – meet A Prudent Man.

A well-groomed, confident-looking man enters the room and sits on a comfortable, expensive-looking leather chair. A bright light bears down on him. There’s water and a glass on the table. Perhaps this is an investigation, but into what, exactly?

His comfortable demeanour soon unravels as the spotlight takes on the scene of an interrogation.

Writer and director Katy Warner’s provocative play probes into the political machine and ‘man’.

The ‘man’ is far removed from being anything but prudent, he sits centre stage, and in the absence of his political advisors, attempts to tell a truthful story.

Muiltiple Green Room nominee Lyall Brooks gives an outstanding, all-consuming performance with his solo enactment of a contemporary politician.

An informed audience of a recent Australian political figure’s faux pas will delight at Brooks’ blend of sarcasm and arrogance, while his accuracy in his delivery of the fast and frenetic dialogue will leave you breathless.

This darkly comedic political thriller looks at what makes the Trumps, the Abbotts and the Hansons of this world tick.

Embodying their slogans, mannerisms and headlines, this award-winning one-man show is a clever amalgamation of recent history’s conservative politicians, exploring what it means to be right…in more ways than one.

This show has toured throughout Australia, New Zealand and to New York. It has won and been nominated for awards, including winner of the 2016 Melbourne Fringe Festival – people’s Choice Award.

For voters and consumers of hidden political agendas, A Prudent Man is a real eye-opener.
