A conservative politician, a leader, a man in a snappy suit, an athlete in a bad tracksuit — meet A Prudent Man.
A well-groomed, confident-looking man enters the room and sits on a comfortable and expensive-looking leather chair. A bright light shines on him. There’s water and a glass on the table, but that’s all. Perhaps this is an investigation. What has he done wrong?
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?
Written and directed by Katy Warner, A Prudent Man is a darkly comedic political thriller exploring what it means to be right… in more ways than one.
In a tour-de-force solo performance Lyall Brooks embodies all the slogans, mannerisms and headlines of the world’s conservative politicians in a way that is so true to life it is unsettling.
