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 Howard’s, the Abbott’s, the Cameron’s and the Thatcher’s 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.

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.

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