A Prudent Man

Saturday 29 April 7.00pm

A conservative politician, a leader, a man in a snappy suit, an athlete in a bad tracksuit. Meet A Prudent Man – an amalgamation of the right-wing politician that haunts us all.

Written and directed by Katy Warner and performed by Lyall Brooks, A Prudent Man takes an unapologetic look at a man both in control and on the edge.

What makes the Trumps, the Abbotts and the Hansons of this world tick? What would happen if their world started to shift ever so slightly?

This darkly comedic political thriller explores what it means to be right... in more ways than one.

This is not a show about one politician or political event; this is a speculative piece inspired by real life events and people.

Writer and director Katy Warner returns home to WA having recently won the 2016 AWGIE for Best Children’s Theatre for Reasons to Stay Inside and the 2016 Rachel Funari Prize for Fiction for One Hundred and Fifty Seconds. Her 2013 Melbourne Fringe play Dropped was nominated for two Green Room Awards and performed at this year’s Edinburgh Festival.

Performer Lyall Brooks most recently appeared in the Helpmann Award nominated “North by Northwest” (Arts Centre Melbourne), “The Heretic” (MTC) and “Sunday in the Park with George” (Victorian Opera). He has received three Green Room award nominations for Patricia Cornelius’ “Savages”, “The Pride” for Red Stitch and “The Thing About Men” (Magnormos). Recent TV appearances include “Neighbours” and HBO’s “The Leftovers”.
