A 2016 Melbourne Fringe Show not to be missed!

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 in control of everything on the edge.

A darkly comic mixture of the Howards, the Abbotts, the Camerons and the Thatchers of the world, A Prudent Man looks at what it means to be a decent human being, and what it means to be right - in more ways than one.

What makes the Cory Bernardis and Pauline Hansons of this world tick? What would happen if their world started to shift ever so slightly?

This is not a show about one politician or political event, this is a speculative piece inspired by real life events and people - including the playwright’s mother who is rumoured to have voted for the Liberals. Once. In the 90s.

Writer and director Katy Warner returns to Melbourne Fringe having won the 2015 Melbourne Fringe Award for Best Kids Show for her Green Room Nominated play Reasons to Stay Inside.

Her 2013 Melbourne Fringe play Dropped was nominated for two Green Room Awards and will be performed at this years Edinburgh Festival, while One Hundred and Fifty Seconds won the 2016 Rachel Funari Prize for Fiction.

Lyall Brooks most recently appeared in the Helpmann Award nominated North by Northwest (Arts Centre Melbourne), Savages by Patricia Cornelius (fortyfivedownstairs), The Heretic (MTC) and The Pride for Red Stitch. He has received three Green Room award nominations for Savages, The Pride and The Thing About Men (Magnormos).
